Escapism...

Whatever your religious beliefs (or not) you cannot deny the beauty of churches and cathedrals. After a busy few weeks, rather than seeking solace in Costa, Mark and I had a wander around Worcester Cathedral. We both had to do projects about it for school but it was the first time I really appreciated the beauty of it all. 






















The quiet was just what I needed and it gave me space (and time) to gather my thoughts. It was an unusual respite from the toils of daily life but a welcome one and I actually found it quite inspiring. 

Where do you go for peace and quiet? Do you have any unusual inspirations?

I love getting away from it all and doing something different for the day! The cathedral looks beautiful :) It's nice to have some time out and be able to re-evaluate things. x

When I was at uni, especially in third yeaf, my friends and I used to go sit in the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral when we needed to relax a bit. It's just so calm and beautiful (the inside is fab too) and even now I think about it and I find it reassuring! I've loved cathedrals ever since I went inside Notre Dame many years ago and was blown away by the beauty of it, I now make a point of going into cathedrals, little churches, chapels and so on wherever I go! xxx

I love the architecture of churches and cathedrals. They're all so beautiful, and this one looks so beautiful as well.

gorgeous! Hereford is one of my fave places for unusual architecture. I visit Caerphilly castle a lot (there is usually a tardis on the top for some reason) xx

It looks so lovely, I love the high high ceilings and the stained glass. I used to love sitting in the gardens of the Liverpool Anglican cathedral in between Uni lectures.
