Towns exhibiting in the Discover Britain’s Delightful Towns zone at the inaugural GO Travel Show in London last month, included Faversham, home to Britain’s oldest brewery, the specialist food hall Macknade Fine Foods, and the Brogdale Collection. It was the first show attended by Hannah Tilley, the new tourism officer for the town. Also there, was Melton Mowbray showcasing its traditional pork pies and other culinary specialities; the coastal town of Hastings promoting its newly restored pier; the medieval town of Dunster in Somerset; the historic coastal town of Dover; Newport, Gwent highlighting its maritime heritage; the vibrant harbourside town of Poole and the Hertfordshire town of Ware, famous for its surviving 1930s Art Deco lido.
The zone was packed with visitors all day long revealing just how much interest there is in visiting towns and learning more about diverse aspects of Britain’s heritage.
