Food Temptations at Best of Britain & Ireland

By | Category: Travel rumblings

The show, Best of Britain & Ireland, to which we have been offering free tickets opened at ExCel in London’s Docklands to members of the travel trade yesterday so I thought I would let you know what was available when you come at the weekend.
I can’t tell you all that you’ll see because some exhibitors won’t be setting up until Friday night. I was quite pleased though to find that our stand was right next to that of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale only to find out that they weren’t moving in till Saturday morning all ready for you weekend visitors to sample their produce!
Staying on a similar theme, the smells coming from the Irish food stand yesterday morning were so appealing . Dry cured bacon, home made sausage on Waterford blaa was my choice. At lunch it was the Scottish food stand that took my fancy. Venison. You can’t beat it.
Anyway apart from the food, seductive enough in itself, there are the other 300 odd stands with great ideas on where to spend breaks.
Slightly different was the Find My Past stand which was giving information about the 1911 census and the strange (well I found it strange) that one in five adults in the UK had made a conscious decision to move back to where the ancestors came from!
One of the interesting things was the number of new attractions that I talked to people about that were being developed. In the next few years there will be wonderful places to visit if all goes to plan.
So don’t forget to click on the link to get your free tickets and enjoy the food, the exhibitors and the talks
