A Day Trip From London

I love this time of the year, just before the clocks go back โฐ, when the leaves are starting to fall off the trees ๐Ÿ‚ย ๐Ÿand, if you are lucky, the mornings are full of bright sunshine โ˜€๏ธ. ย I really like wrapping up warm ๐Ÿ‘’ย and stepping outside into the brisk cold air โ„๏ธ, and enjoying the sun โ˜บ๏ธ.

Last weekend we decided to escape London ๐ŸŽก and took a day trip to Sussex ๐ŸŒณ. ย It was really very easy, we hopped on a train ๐Ÿš‚ at Clapham Junction with our bicycles ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿšฒ, and got off at Lewes. ย We cycled via Glynde (there were a few steep hills! ๐Ÿ—ป), ย and made out way to Charleston Farmhouseย ๐Ÿก. ย The garden ๐ŸŒทat Charleston is looking spectacular right now, the dahlias ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒปย are out, and it is the perfect time of year for a wander – I have written about the garden here. ย This time we also had a quick look around the house ๐Ÿ , far smaller than I had imagined ๐Ÿ‘ง, with lots of exciting artworks ๐ŸŽจ, and we learnt a bit more about the very intriguing Bloomsbury group. ย We then cycled ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿšฒback to Lewes via the main road (there is a cycle path, although it cuts off abruptly just before reaching Lewes, we were slightly perturbed ๐Ÿ˜ณ). ย And the a train ๐Ÿš‚ย ๐Ÿ’ค ride back to London.

It was a super day ๐Ÿ˜ƒ, and very sunny ๐Ÿ˜, and it was really quite excellent to be in the countryside ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒณ.
