In need of a pint after seeing a ghost in the Underground? Try a haunted pub!

Seems rather appropriate, it being Halloween and all, to give folks a few options tonight that go beyond the traditional trick-or-treat phenomenon where you can possibly cross paths with those that have yet to ‘cross-over’… The London Underground is now over 150 years old and stretches over 250 miles of track underneath the city of […]

Scotland – Should I stay or should I go now?

In the beginning, England and Scotland were not only separate, they were frequently at war. Ever since that fateful day in 1707 when the two countries got together and formed a single country, Scotland has been part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Today’s referendum vote, which has been in the works for almost two and one-half years, offers Scotland the chance to break free from Great Britain and gain its independence.

As we reported recently, Planet Earth’s favorite British period drama headed to Hogwarts this past week to continue filming for their forthcoming series 5 which will transmit in September on ITV1 and in January 2015 on PBS in the States. What wasn’t completely clear at the time was that the filming taking place at Alnwick […]

‘Downton Abbey’ heads to Hogwarts for S5

Platform 9 & 3/4, magically concealed behind the barrier between Muggle Platform Nine and Platform Ten, at King’s Cross Station in London will be a bit crowded this week as cast and crew of Downton Abbey headed to Alnwick Castle in Northumberland.
