I have been to Paris too many times to count over the years, but with so much to explore and see, you can just never see it all.

“My top tip when visiting this spectacular city is to bring a pair of trainers and walk everywhere.

“There is no better way to get a feel for a city than spending a day walking through the streets and taking in the atmosphere. If you can, take a trip down to the court in Pigalle, it really is a special place.

“I also love fashion, so I often head to the ‘le Triangle d’Or’ to shop when I visit Paris.”
