Time for a posting break….

Have a break Travel with Leighton Literature English travel blogger.

“The time has come the walrus said, to think of other things”. Non-posting things.  No matter how hard I try to get on top of my gargantuan to-do list I just cannot seem to push this little blog of mine far enough down The Yellow Brick Road. It’s been over three months since I departed […]

Travel Report: The Beatles Story, Liverpool.

Visit The Beatles Story Liverpool.

May 2019. The whole idea of making Liverpool the centerpiece of my 2019 travels around England was to fulfil a lifelong desire to see all those amazing Beatles spots I’ve read about and seen on TV.

Travel Report: The Statues in the Sand – Crosby Beach, Liverpool.

The Statues in the Sand Crosby Beach Liverpool.

May 2019. With so much to see and do in the centre of Liverpool, visitors could be forgiven for concentrating their efforts strictly on the city sights. But if you find yourself getting a little bogged down in museum-ness and are in need of some fresh sea air, I can highly recommend a thirty-minute train […]
