The phrase above is the slogan that Visit Britain us using as part of its advertising campaign to encourage Americans to come and see us. The slogan thought up by Californian, Jay Masunaga, in a competition designed to publicise Britain as a holiday destination for the gay community.
To complement the promotion, Visit Britain has also come up with categories of people to whom Britain would appeal. These are Foodies, Night Owls, Event-Goers, Culturati, Chillers and Fashionistas. You can guess what most of these are but how about Chillers

Tourism Loyalty to Wales

Jan 27th, 2010 | By

Each country asks visitors from time-to-time whether they would revisit their country. Today, customer satisfaction specialists say that there are only a few questions that matter. They are whether you would revisit and would you recommend to your friends and relatives. (The reason for asking whether you would recommend to friends is that you are felt to be more likely only to recommend it to people you know if you were really happy to do so.)
So in the latest survey by Visit Wales, 70% of people said they would revisit and 86% said that they would recommend. These are high figures so, naturally, Alan Ffred Jones, the Assembly minister responsible for tourism and Visit Wales are rather pleased.

Another Museum Burns

Another museum, the Cae Dai 1950’s Motor Museum in Lawnt outside Denbigh in North Wales has been badly damaged by fire.

Now that the roof has caved in, it is not sure if anything can be saved from the collection. But being a 1950’s museum, there was more than the odd vehicle. There were examples of food and everyday items from the time including ration books (I still have mine somewhere about the place) and mock-ups of what kitchens were like at the time.
