This weekend me and a few girls from uni travelled up to Telford for a friends birthday party. It was so cute she had a room booked out in a pub which was decorated with fairy lights and balloons. She has lots of music and a really really nice buffet which didn’t last long with a load of hungry dance students!! Here are some of the photos of us all before the alcohol took over…. (I’m in the white top and skirt).
Seeing as though we were all in a new place we thought we would be tourists and go and see some of the sights Telford has to offer on a sunny bank holiday Monday. But first of all we had to stuff ourselves on the all you can eat breakfast from a pub next to our hotel!! Telford being the home of the industrial revolution has the first ever iron bridge ever made so we decided to go and take a look as it was only 20 minutes away. After an hour of wrong directions, close shaves with crazy bus drivers, risky sharp turns and having to ask a random stranger for directions we finally made it to the iron bridge!!! (YAY!!!) We were all very very excited so we had to take a group selfie to mark the occassion!!
The whole area was so pretty! There were day tripping families and dogs everywhere as well as a pirate boat that we spotted going under the bridge…
We then visited a tea emporium across from the bridge where we all had a pot of tea and some snacks. I treated myself to a raspberry icecream and a pot of peppermint tea and some of the girls had scones and even a sticky toffee pudding (which happens to be my favourite). It was all very yummy!! It was so cute all 7 of us sat around drinking tea in the sun it was probably one of the most sophisticated things I’ve done in a very long time!! There was also loads of quaint gift shops and stalls dotted around the bridge which were also very cute to have a wonder around.
Telford and the surrounding area was all so pretty I would definitely take another adventure to see what else it has to offer as I was only there for a very weekend trip. It was also so cute to celebrate a friends 21st birthday with all her lovely friends and family as well as spending a relaxing afternoon altogether which is a massive rarity as we are always in rehearsals and classes or too tired to function.
Thanks for reading.
(Don’t think I have ever written a blog post which includes the word cute or lovely as so many times as this one)
