B&B Day occurs at be the culmination of English Tourism Week (#ETW18). Its aim is not only to support and celebrate the hospitality industry but also to get as many guests as possible staying in UK B&Bs over the weekend of 24/25th March, the last weekend of the off-peak season.

B&B Association chairman David Weston said: “We are inviting all B&Bs, guest houses and independent hotels to entice people to book by offering guests something special for B&B Day. Visit bandbday.com/participate to submit your offers and look at the ‘Inspiration’ and ‘Browse’ pages for ideas. It could be a discount or special deal but doesn’t have to be price based. Get creative! Could you for instance offer guests breakfast in bed, a free afternoon tea, free beauty treatment or a tasting of local produce on National B&B Day? So do get thinking, get involved, and submit your special deals or offers now at bandbday. com/participate

He added: “We’ve had support from a number of destinations including Cumbria Tourism, Welcome to Yorkshire, Visit Somerset and The English Riviera who have been active in promoting the day to businesses and potential guests.”
