British Heritage Membership

       Just a quick and useful post. We recently purchased a joint pass to all the sites under the British Heritage Trust. All the information can be found here. It includes many places you can visit for free or half price. Stonehenge is one of them too. So far we visited two places in the "neighborhood":
 Kenilworth Castle & Elizabethan Garden and Rushton Triangular Lodge. Kenilworth Castle is one of the premium sights. And indeed it looks premium and grandiose.

Brick Lane - London's East End

      What a great weekend in London! We had a visit from our friends, one of them a London expert. She used to live here for a while and made us a "must do" London list, which will be an inspiration for my future posts. She said she copyrighted it though, so I might be hearing from her lawyers very 
soon :-). 

One of our first stops was Rough Trade, the huge music store close to Brick Lane. This area of London is sooooooo Williamsburgish. When I googled the store to find the link I also found out they are opening a NYC store very soon and guess where in NYC? Yes, Williamsburg.
