The point is a community art centre run by darts (Doncaster Community arts). It is a public building with a cafe. There is a gallery which has a variety of exhibitions throughout the year. Rooms can be hired out to the public.
wiltshire, Slough, Berkshire SN8 1JA
I am a regular shopper at Amazon.co.uk
Their super saver delivery is generally very quick, even though it states it can take longer.
On monday this week I ordered 6 dvd's for my daughters birthday they arrived on wednesday morning! The only thing I would complain about was that they sent them 6 DVD's in 6 seperate envelopes, but that's just me being picky.
Amazon have come a long way since they first started and I would recommend them to everyone.
Unit 11 The Oasis, Meadowhall Centre, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S9 1EP
We went to meadowhall this weekend with friends who were visiting. We all decided on McDonalds and although the general food court was very busy we were pleasantly suprised to see that the express lane was open and empty so we got served very quickly.
It took longer to get the sauce than it did to get the food.
Food was pretty much standard for McDonalds, though the fried were a little more salty than I had liked.
Compston Road, Ambleside, Cumbria LA22 9AD
We were so pleased to find this on a stroll around Ambleside.
We decided on the spur of the moment to go and see Night at the Museum 2. whilst the screen and room was relatively small, it was still a most enjoyable experience.
The prices were reasonable and the popcorn was tasty.
The staff were friendly and helpful and it made a lovely change to use a smaller independent cinema rather than the larger multiplexes were are used to which are always busy.
There was a great looking Jazz bar, which we unfortunately didn’t get the opportunity to use, but it looked very inviting.
between Esthwaite Water and Cursey Beck,, and the East coast of Coniston Water, Coniston, Cumbria LA22 0QJ
We visited Grizedale forest on our holiday this bank holiday weekend.
We had a bit of a hard time finding it initially (but it was our first time in the area). I a so glad we didn’t give up trying to find it though!
The visitor centre and shops etc, were going through some refurbishment, but this didn’t get in our way at all.
The walks we took (yellow route and blue route, with a bit of white) were great fun and gave us some stunning views.
The yellow route was especially fun as it went under the Go-Ape aerial assault course area and that was a lot of fun to see.
They have walks to suit all abilities and it’s very easy to spend many hours there.
Great fun for all the family!
Broadgate, Ambleside, Cumbria LA22 9TB
On our first night at the Lake District we needed to get some food, we hadn’t realised how popular it was to eat at Grasmere, but were fortunate that Sara’s Bistro could fit us in.
If we had been much later, they would have struggled as it was obviously a popular place to eat.
The staff were very good and knowledgeable and friendly. The decor is pleasant and the atmosphere is inviting.
Run by a husband and wife, the foo was exquisite. I had a smoked salmon and mackeral pot on a bed of cucumber spaghetti for my starter and it was simply divine.
My mine was a fillet of Seabass on pesto linguini and everything about it was lovely.
To finish I had a lovely sticky toffee pudding, with vanilla icecream.
It’s certainly not the cheapest of places to eat, but in my mind you definitely get what you paid for.
They have a good seletion of wine on offer at reasonable prices too.
Keswick Road, Ambleside, Cumbria LA22 9RE
Dunmail house is a 5 star B&B situated on the A591, just outside of Grasmere village.
It has 4 rooms and is run by a warm and friendly couple.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and has all the comforts you’re likely to need. There is a TV/DVD in the room (plus the ability to hire out DVD’s from an extensive list - free of charge!), tea/coffee making facilities and the ensuite shower is to a high standard.
The shared lounge is comfortable and holds plenty of information regarding local things to see and do as well as local places to eat.
Their breakfast range is wonderful and really did set us up for the day! They cater for special diets (i.e. Vegetarian) and are flexible with the breakfast choices.
The B&B may be on a main road, but their triple glazing in the rooms mean you hear very little car noise. the views from the front and back are stunning.
This was my first visit to the Lake District and Dunmail House and our stay there added to a wonderful experience.
They are very walker friendly and you can access some wonderful walks from there. Ambleside, Keswick, Windermere, Coniston and Grizedale forest are all short drives away.
Pond Street, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 1WB
I studied at Sheffield Hallam University (or SHU as it’ referred to) between 1997 and 2001. I was based at the city campus and really enjoyed my time there.
The addsetts centre (Library) is huge and had a full offering of every book you were likely to need on your course. As well as computers you could use to do your assignments and research.
There are some lovely places to eat on campus and their instore blackwells bookstore is really well stocked too (could get busy at the start of each term).
The lecture theatres were all good too.
The university is often seen as the less stuffy of the two universities based in Sheffield.
I enjoyed my student days there and would definitely recommend it to others.
Promenade, Blackpool FY1 4BJ
When you ask people what they know about Blackpool there are 3/4 things they’d normally say.
- Blackpool Tower
- Pleasure Beach
Although they aren’t on all year around the Blackpool Illuminations attracts a large amount of visitors each year. They really are quite spectacular. Some people visit in a coach/car and just drive the length of the golden mile to experience them, but i personally think walking the golden mile is a much better experience as there are so many cars/coaches on the road it is very very slow.
We enjoyed them this year and it was great, we also had a treat as there was a Honda Goldwing convention in to so it was great seeing all these bikes fully kitted out with various coloured lights, they were an experience in themselves.
When night falls and the illuminations are turned on it really does transform the golden mile into something else.
525 Ocean Boulevard, Promenade, Blackpool FY4 1EZ
Blackpool Pleasure Beach is a large Theme park, which is accessible from the front (Golden Mile).
It hosts a great range of rides including some fantastic rollercoasters as well as rides suited to younger ones and families.
It’s always been quite notorious for being expensive as you used to have to buy books of ride tickets, which could prove costly. It has however changed in recent years with the introduction of arm bands. You can pay a one off fee for an armband which gives you unlimited rides, which is a huge saving for those who like to cram in as many rides as possible.
Queues can be long especially for the rollercoasters, but that’s never stopped people before.
The park is also open till quite late which means that people can enjoy a full day of fun and rides.
There are plans from 2009 to charge people to enter the park even if they don’t intend to go on any rides, which is a shame as even without going on the rides it’s an interesting place to walk around in.
Well worth a visit if you enjoy rides. There are several eating places inside and various amusement arcades.
