White Cliffs of Dover. Our tips for 25 fun things to do in England: Get there via Southeastern train from Kings Cross, 2 hours from £40 return. Have a bite at the adorable Pines Garden Tea Room. Make sure to see Deal Castle. Available to explore top to bottom, the castle also links to a cycling path that runs straight to the seaside. Grab a pint at Rack of Ale, Dover's first micro pub. Careful though, this quirky haunt enforces a phones off policy!
Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland. One of the biggest second-hand book shops in Britain! Free tea and coffee next to a roaring fire plus a cafe further inside that serves food. Yum. Used to be an old railway station. One of my favouritest places to browse for old books :)
CRISPY DUCK. I've always thought one of the best ways to eat duck was as the Chinese do, but I had never thought it would be so easy to cook. I say "cook". I do nothing except cut some fat off the duck and sit it on a rack on a roasting tin and put it in the oven for hours on end. Then, I take it out, set to with some forks and put some shop-bought Chinese pancakes on to steam.
