14 moments from our summer 2014 trip to the UK


Just a few days after Peabody’s last day of 5th grade, we headed to the UK for two weeks. Leaving right after school usually means better weather and smaller crowds, especially when travelling to Europe. It also starts the summer off big and sets the tone for the next couple months. Here are a few of the adventures we had in our two weeks in Stratford-upon-Avon, York, Edinburgh and London.

  • Calling on Sir John Soane
  • Meeting Henry VIII and George II at their home in Hampton Court
  • Stepping onto the set of a 18th century TV pilot
  • Visiting the Land Rover assembly plant in Solihul
  • Staying at the Ace and having tea in the lobby every morning
  • Touring the RSC’s theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon and seeing Roaring Girl
  • Exploring Lincoln’s Inn with LEG
  • Shopping and eating in Shoreditch
  • Playing games at the National Museum of Scotland
  • Walking the York Wall at dusk
  • Time travelling to Roman Britannia
  • Mudlarking for clay pipes, roof tiles and potsherds
  • Saving the world in 60 minutes and 45 seconds
  • Drinking homebrew with friends and getting inspired to make our own
