One of the problems with deciding where to go is the information that you start with. Many guides are out-of-date as soon as they are published. What is open and when can vary quickly so a new, quarterly magazine called Discover Britain’s Gardens, Historic Homes & Castles is useful for the regular day-tripper as well as the traveller.
Ever visited Buckinghamshire? Have you been to Aylesbuy? Walked the Chilterns? Been on the Grand Central Canal? Followed the Roald Dahl trail?

Glencoe is a popular destination for walkers and skiers. Rather than just being looked on as a place to visit in the winter, it has more people who meander over its stark countryside in the summer. Now Glencoe calls itself an area for all seasons.

These are the names of the winners of the Tourism 2010 grants which are sponsored by Travel XRay (jointly owned by Arkenford and Consumerdata) and CD-Traveller.
The awards are for those destinations that feel they could encourage more visitors to come to them but are constrained by any number of reasons be it financial, staffing or whatever. In practical terms, each destination will receive marketing support over the next year and you will be able to read stories about them in CD-Traveller. Each will have their own pages in the “Partners” section.
So who are the winners?
