The 2010 launch of www.bitesizebritain.co.uk couldn’t come at a better time. Visit Britain says almost 10.5 million people are holidaying in the UK this Easter and one long-range forecaster is insisting that we really are going to have a BBQ summer this year.
Bitesize Britain brings 135 local and regional tourist boards together in one place making planning a staycation easier than ever.
Holiday hotspots such as Devon, The Lake District and Cornwall are featured, plus individual resorts like Blackpool, Eastbourne and Great Yarmouth.
Less well-known but equally rewarding destinations are also listed: Lancashire’s Ribble Valley, Portsmouth and the Heart of Kent for instance.
The site is easy to search by county or location, or key words such as beaches, walking and shopping.
Up to six glossy brochures can be ordered using the simple online form to arrive through the letterbox* – entirely free of charge – a few days later.
Can’t wait? Direct weblinks and phone numbers for 135 local tourist boards are also featured for immediate contact and more complex needs – making the site just as useful for those who plan holidays online.
“Whether they are looking for a Bank Holiday day trip or a full-scale summer staycation, enquirers will find the brochures full of up-to-date and un-biased information,” says Bitesize Britain’s Paul Raybould.
“Users can also be confident that the featured accommodation is officially graded and inspected.”
