Goathland Railway Station | Finding Hogsmeade

As soon as my mum gave me a date for visiting Yorkshire, I was making visual maps and virtual lists of all the places I wanted to visit. The deal was that if we dedicated a day to seeing relatives, I was allowed to pick activities for the rest of the weekend, and I knew…

Life Lately | Live Music, Robin Hood and The North

Since it’s been literally forever a little while since I’ve updated Geeky Tourist, I thought the beginning of the month – Hello October! – would be the perfect time to stop procrastinating, pull my finger out, and give you guys a bit of an update as to why I’ve been so vacant. The short story?…

Furniture Painting with the Mercantile Adventurers

Finding my inner Picasso I don’t get to see my mum very often these days – it’s almost impossible to find a time when we’re both free, and she hates it. I don’t even think she’d be satisfied if we saw each other every day. So this December, I decided to get her something a…

Life Lately | The Prince, the Quiz Night, and a Boundless Summer

I’m a very conflicted person when it comes to having a social life.

Science Afternoon Tea at The Drawing Rooms

As someone who spends a lot of time in London for work, I very rarely get to see much more than my office in Kensington, so this year I’ve decided I want to change that and explore the capital a bit more. If you’ve read much of my blog already, you’ll know I’m always on…

Diagon House

In my mission to catch up with posts, and share some of the places I visited towards the end of last year, I thought I’d write about one of my favourite stores from a recent trip to Edinburgh – Diagon House. It’s bursting at the seams with Harry Potter goodies, and is a must visit…
