A great range of ways to discover Britain's waterways.. #UKTourism   #traveltips  
Our television screens have been awash with programmes about travelling along canals of late, a trend kick-started by Barging Round Britain with John Sergeant earlier in the year and climaxing with BBC4's much-talked-about, two-hour "slow television" narrowboat cruise, The Canal. Britain has more than 2,000 miles of navigable inland waterways; once a cutting-edge transport network of the Industrial Revolution, today these liquid highways offer a ...

Pirates will be taking over Brixham Devon on May Bank Holiday.

There will be LOTS of pirates, military and period reenactors here with guns to make plenty of noise! We will make sure there is plenty of music too with shanties and pirate rock to keep ye hoppin'.

Buskers, jugglers and other entertainers will perform around the streets and harbour of Brixham.

There will be other shows, reenactments and events around the town through the weekend.

Brixham is just a short car ride away from all the pirate fun.

Culture makes a valuable contribution to life in London. It is a main reason why people choose to visit London on their holidays. 7 out of 10 tourists state culture as a reason for their stay in the UK capital.

Book a Torquay B&B direct and support a small family business.

How to book a Torquay B&B and support small family business.
We have had a lot of lovely guests in June this year but most of them have booked using bookingdotcom. It is a great website for comparison shopping but did you know that they charge 15% commission to us and that money goes to a huge multinational company ?
If you would like to support our small business and many others like us, it only takes a few seconds to Google our business name - Torcroft Hotel - and find our own website at www.torcrofthotel.co.uk where you can book on-line in a few minutes.
Thanks for your support this summer.

Visit to Stratford-upon-Avon | Accessible UK Tourism.

No visit to Stratford-upon-Avon would be complete without a night out in the theatre. Imagine how excited we were to see a great play and do an access review at the same time - utopia!

Kent School Holidays and Half Term Dates 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Kent, in south-east England, is one of the most populated counties in the UK. Perhaps most famous for the white cliffs of Dover, Kent has always been the gateway to Britain and makes a great English holiday destination.

This historical county can trace its name as far back as the 4th century BC when it was called "Cantium", from the Celtic word for "coastal land". Take a trip to the white cliffs today and you'll find a visitor's centre accompanying some dramatic cliff top walks.

With miles of historic landscape and buildings, Kent holidays are the perfect way to spend the half term break. Add to this the varied seaside destinations and you have everything you need for the summer school holidays.

Celebrate St George’s Day - 23rd April. St George is the patron saint of England.

We celebrate his position in history with a national day on the 23rd April each year. This is held to be the day of his death in 303 AD.

This is not an official bank holiday in England, so we don't get the day off, unfortunately! Other countries around the world also recognise St George and many have their own day dedicated to him as he is considered to be one of the most venerated saints in many religions.

Stayed in a family room late November 2014 for one Saturday night. Corporate event. The pros: The staff are very helpful and attentive. The evening food was excellent thought I understand the vegetarian option was lacking in quantity. There is 24 hour underground parking at a reasonable rate for Brighton. Breakfast buffet is served until 11am with 12 noon checkout. Breakfast was buffet style, with plenty of seating and excellent quality of food on offer. The cons: The hotel rooms are very tired. The rooms need decorating and bringing up to 2014 standards. Such things as broken shower hoses, dirty marks on walls, broken handle on iron, terrible TV reception, no instructions on setting clock radio time. A lack of plug sockets, no free Wi-Fi, over £14.50 per day!!! Rooms very stuffy, even with windows slightly open (security feature). Our floor (5th) was quiet but many people close to ground level complain of noise from air-con / ventilation fans running outside 24/7. I understand that the hotel will be upgrading over 170 rooms during 2015, so hopefully if I return I can rate again at 5 stars.

I don't normally review banks but as a customer of this local branch I feel it's only right to give praise where it's due. The staff are always friendly and helpful. A genuine local branch. This is not a review of the corporate policy but a thank you to the staff in Storrington for being friendly day to day.

As a big kid and former mechanical engineer what is there not to like about the Bluebell Railway. You can travel up and down the line several times a day, on steam or diesel. You can chat to the friendly staff, walk around the engine sheds and speak to people about the restoration projects. It's a genuine family day out. Our kids loved having a go with the semaphore signal-box levers, was the highlight of their trip.

A great spot for a lunchtime "business" meeting. Friendly staff, plenty of seating and right in the heart of Storrington. Only had chips but tasted lovely!

I've been eating out at The Swan for years. First visited back in 1987 when I was living in Weybridge. Had some great great nights there. A genuine friendly pub. I was a local for years on and off. Even used to drive up from Fleet in Hampshire to visit friends in Walton and end up in The Swan. Over the years there have been many changes of staff and decor but The Swan has remained a friendly venue to eat and drink.

As a long time member of the National Trust I'm lucky to have Petworth Park only 10 miles away. The grounds and paths are always well maintained and it's a lovely walk for people of all ages. Enough space in the estate to get away from the South East crowds. We park at the northern edge of the estate and then walk to the house and back, around 4.5 mile round trip. The views are gorgeous, from the South Downs to the North Downs.
