A Peek At My Week
The Great Outdoors
It’s taken me a long time to discover the joys of open-air swimming but, thanks to the glorious women’s pond on Hampstead Heath (above), I’ve become a passionate fan.
I’ve had some fabulous swims there this summer.
While I was in Edinburgh for the weekend, I took the chance to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. The decor and design was much more modest and homely than I expected (it clearly was a home from home). The Queen’s cabin (above), with its single bed (Prince Philip’s cabin was similar if more masculine in its decor, and through a connecting door) may not have been luxurious, but it was definitely more spacious than the crew’s quarters (left)!
It’s a fascinating tour. For details, call 0131 555 5566 or visit royalyachtbritannia.co.uk.
