Rudding Park Luxury Hotel & Spa|Travel|Harrogate

Ok so let me start of by saying I have been lucky enough to visit a number of spas in the last few years. However, i’ve never experienced anywhere quite like this…

Rudding Park Spa soars high above all expectations, so much so that even the 5 star reviews I was reading through before I arrived (I have a habit of doing that) didn’t actually do it justice. This place is a pure delight. In short, it’s gorgeous, the staff are world-class, it’s ridiculously clean and the facilities they have are the best I’ve ever , EVER, experienced!

National Railway Museum|Wang Fuchun – The Invisible Photographer Exhibition|York

National Railway Museum - Wang Fuchun - York - Tom Sheard

Early last week I was invited to something pretty special. This wasn’t the usual kind of event that I am usually asked to attend so I jumped at the chance.

Stockdale’s Of Yorkshire|Leeds|Food Review

I want to tell you about a little place in Leeds.

Now…I know a lot about my home city (or at least I think I do) and I have eaten in some beautiful places. But this place seemed to divert under my radar. It’s a place I have heard mentioned numerous times but for whatever reason never actually had the chance to try. Anyway, welcome to Stockdale’s Of Yorkshire, a restaurant where hand’s down they delivered the best steak I’ve ever eaten… like literally, I ate every single bit of it.

Polo Ralph Lauren|New Opening|Leeds

We are all familiar with that world famous horseback mounted polo silhouette, the one that sits elegantly on the breast of a perfectly sculptured item of clothing. It’s instantly recognisable, exudes style and cements the reality of a good-quality garment. Of course I am talking about Polo Ralph Lauren (PRL).

Just recently Polo Ralph Lauren has opened a new store in the heart of our vibrant and fast paced city of Leeds. The store is nestled delicately between other high fashion designer brands such as Mulberry & Louis Vuitton that line the arcades of The Victoria Quarter. Myself and Stanleydru were lucky enough to be invited to come and check this place out and experience a real Polo Ralph Lauren fitting.
