Can’t make it to The Telegraph’s Adventure Travel Show this weekend? Panic not: you can also find the perfect destination for your next trip at Destinations: The Holiday & Travel Show, which will be held at Earls Court, London from February 2 to 5.
The quick and easy answer is to say that it does. Seaside resorts want sunshine to attract you but when you get there, the galleries, museums, piers and theatre shows want a bit of rain in the morning to encourage you to go and attend their performances in the afternoon. It was widely said that the reasons Scots don’t holiday at home is because there is little sun in the winter so they head abroad where sun is virtually guaranteed. And on a wet day, you look for things you can go to inside rather than get drenched or cold outside.
It makes sense then, to go to somewhere that combines a range of indoor and outdoor activities I would have thought. And that is what most of the UK offers. And that may contribute to the announcement from Visit Britain this morning that tourism could grow by 60% and create a quarter of a million jobs over the next few years
