Weekend Recap | Week 3

Hey Y'all!

This weekend was one that Allix and I had been looking forward to for about 2 1/2 years. This was the weekend that we were finally visiting the home of THE HARRY STYLES. I mean, what could be better than that?

We started our day by catching a quick, and cheap, Uber London to Euston station for our 8:00 train to Manchester. After catching up on our sleep during the beautiful ride north we had finally arrived to a place that was way different than we had expected. We had expected Manchester to be a lot like London, but boy were we wrong. It was very crowded, and very small. The Parklife musical festival was happening the same weekend, so we were constantly dodging the thousands of young girls and boys who came to partake.

Allix and I found a cute garden outside of a cathedral so we stopped to take in the beautiful view, and of course to snap a few pictures because life is always a photo shoot with us! After our relaxation in the sun, it was finally time to go off to Holmes Chapel. After dreaming about this moment for years, we couldn't believe it was actually happening. As we stepped off the train into the tiny village in Cheshire, we were astounded by the beauty.

Our first stop was of course W. Mandeville Bakery where Harry used to work. Unfortunately we weren't able to taste the amazing pies and pasteries because the bakery is closed on Sundays. It was so surreal to stare in the windows and imagine that he used to be here every weekend.

Next up we popped into The George & Dragon, one of Harry's favorite restaurants to grab a quick dinner. Leave it to us Texans to find Chicken fajitas in a restauraunt in northern England. We felt right at home.

We had about an hour and half until our train back to London, so we decided to walk around the village. It was a beautiful evening. We still couldn't believe that we were actually in Holmes Chapel. Never in a million years did I think that I would actually be visiting his hometown.

Well, now that we have officially scared you all off....hahah we promise we aren't this crazy usually, but when it comes to those British musicians we just can't help ourselves. Check back soon for our adventures from our last week in London. We are so sad it is coming to an end!
