How to Get More in Touch with Your British Heritage

How to Get More in Touch with Your British Heritage

Sponsored Britain is a brilliant place to live. We have a long history of bringing cultures together and in our current state, the UK is a beautiful meld of different people and viewpoints. This diversity is part of what makes us who we are and whilst in all societies there are people that take it too far, we should still be proud of who we are.

However, it’s very easy to settle into your daily life and do the same things. Your life and walk around the same city, go to do the same job and generally do the same things day in, day out. This can get monotonous and boring, or make you feel like you have a lack of identity, which is when you really just want to do some classic, British things to get back in touch with your childhood and your heritage.

In this short post, we’re going to look at what you can do to reconnect with the country and experience everything that Britain has to offer. View Post

Acorn Dell at Hever Castle: A day in pictures

Acorn Dell at Hever Castle: A day in pictures

We were recently invited to the opening of a new play area for children under 7 at Hever Castle, which took place yesterday. This new playground, fittingly called Acorn Dell, blends in with the Tudor Towers play area. It continues the castle theme, with castellations featuring in both the play area and the seating area at the top. The natural aesthetic of the playground is fantastic and encourages children to use their imagination.

JB Gill, formerly of JLS, who presents Down on the Farm on CBeebies was the guest of honour to cut the blue ribbon before the playground was opened. His wife Chloe and 3 year-old son Ace also attended. Of course, the new playground needed some little testers!  View Post

Easter family fun at Hever Castle

Easter family fun at Hever Castle

A family day out has been overdue for ages now. We have been excited about visiting Hever Castle in Kent since the beginning of the year, when we first planned to visit during the Easter school holidays! Whilst it wasn’t quite the warm spring weather we’d hoped for, the rain fortunately stayed away for the duration of our visit. This lent itself to us fully enjoying the Lindt gold bunny hunt as we explored the beautiful gardens surrounding the castle!  View Post

Rochester Dickensian Christmas Weekend 2017

Rochester Dickensian Christmas Weekend 2017

A couple of weekends ago, we went to Rochester Christmas Market. We chose that particular weekend, as it was also the Dickensian Christmas Weekend. Charles Dickens lived locally in Higham and many of his novels were inspired by the surrounding area. This is one of two festivals in Rochester throughout the year in which Dickens enthusiasts, re-enactors and many others gather and celebrate Charles Dickens with members of the public.

We arrived just in time for one of the first parades of the day. It’s always such a delight to see so many beautiful outfits and smiley faces. It’s great fun and feels very festive! View Post
