The Town Hall Bethnal Green review

The Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal Green

A Weekend In Jersey

This was to be my second trip to Jersey and the children’s first. My good friend Néva moved there last year with her husband’s job and I first visited with my boyfriend back in an unseasonably stormy October 2017: after spending that weekend eating good food and stomping around glorious beaches I couldn’t wait to return with the kids.
