Editor Debbie Rogers, the Brit in the team, is full of nostalgia watching this video from the Visit Britain team.
Lots of reasons to visit Britain in 2018, aside from Fish & Chips! Here’s some of the key activities planned for the year, what we will inspire you to Visit Britain? – Debbie is hoping to go back for the Bristol Balloon Festival, eat her weight in clotted cream! (so good), and enjoy spending precious time with her family as well as to hit quite a few Farmers Markets.
