England's all-weather destination status hailed
Bookmark and Share
Tourism body VisitEngland has issued a reminder that while people love a sunny summer's day, the country is very much an all-weather destination.

Chief executive of the organisation James Berresford said: "One of the great things about England is that it is an all-weather destination with world-class attractions which can be enjoyed whatever the weather."

While Mr Berresford was referring to the many indoor attractions people can see, those preparing to spend the summer in the countryside may be well prepared with waterproof jackets.

However, hydration packs may also be in order for those heading to the hills as the hot weather may continue.

Other preparations for summery weather may include getting insect protection from a Go Outdoors store to deal with midges if heading to Scotland.

Last week, June 27th was measured as the hottest day of the year to date, with the Met Office recording a temperature of 30.9 degrees C in Gravesend, Kent.
