British towns are bank Holiday favourites

Cornwall, Torquay and Yorkshire are set to see a surge in visitors this Bank Holiday weekend, despite the forecasted rain. Tourism and accommodation website iknow-uk attriubutes the rise in interest to a drop in consumer confidence caused by collapsing overseas tour operators, ash clouds and threatened airport strikes. “It takes a lot more than grey, wet weather to keep Brits indoors, especially over the Bank Holiday when most want to get out and about with their families,” said iknow.co.uk Managing Director Marcus Simmons. “These latest figures highlight that British people are still looking closer to home when it comes to summer breaks, and we’re seen a steady increase in people looking for caravan breaks this year - a trend we’re expecting to continue into 2011.” Enquiries for late deals in Cornwall are up 46.85%, visits for last minute holiday ideas for Torquay have risen by 19.23% while searches for bank holiday caravan holidays in Yorkshire are up by 43.57%, all compared with the same time last year.
