Tourism and MP’s

Oct 11th, 2011 | By

Since the last general election, issues about tourism have come up more than I seem to remember in the past. A typical debate was one covering Yorkshire that happened last month.



World Travel Awards

Nov 10th, 2010 | By

Last week CD-Traveller mentioned that this was the time of awards. At the same time as the British Travel Awards, the awards they call the Oscars of travel, the World Travel Awards, were announced. Unlike the British awards, I don’t think the consumer has much say in these.



The Yorkshire Pass

Feb 24th, 2010 | By

It is quite common to be able to buy a tourist pass in the bigger cities like London and Edinburgh which gives you savings on visiting museums and attractions and the like. And as we wrote yesterday, Kent has one day when differing bodies like the National Trust and English Heritage come together but, as yet, there has been no county pass.
Until now.
Yorkshire, the county that doesn’t exist as one but as three separate ones has managed to get a number of organisations together so that one pass covers all. Or at least 75 attractions within the three counties. There has been a York Pass but this new county wide pass has taken over and covers privately run attractions like Castle Howard and Harewood House as well as places like the Jorvik centre and the Treasurers House that were available with the old York Pass.
