Photo Diary: winter warmth in Marrakech

Monday, November 07, 2016

When you need respite from the cold, the Moroccans gatchu boo. We learned that during our recent visit to Mosaic Grill on a wet and windy day here in London. But as the winter months creep on, a little overseas action wouldn't go amiss. For winter sun and warmth think Morocco once again, specifically Marrakech. It’s widely thought of as a bustling, fast-paced destination. However, between hammams and spice souks, the ancient medina is the perfect place to slow down and give your body a restorative boost. If you're in need of some winter warmth, get inspired with our photo diary from a 5 day break to Marrakech.
