Find out what the rest of Britain and Ireland has to offer

As regular readers will have probably noticed by now, your author is a bit of a tourism geek, and loves to make the most of wherever he finds himself. So what better place to indulge that passion than the Best of Britain and Ireland show at Kensington Olympia this weekend.

The show gives regional tourist boards and travel operators an opportunity to let you know about what they have on offer and aims to bring together the best of the tourism offering in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

If you're looking to make sure you make the most of a domestic holiday later in the year it could be worth a visit. Last year 10,000 people came in search of new holiday ideas, and, we are told, tasted both modern and traditional cuisine and met with (people playing) Henry VIII, Sergeant Pepper, Rabbie Burns and ballerinas from English National Ballet, and that one was at ExCeL. This year it is in the rather more atmospheric setting of Kensington Olympia.

Your author popped along earlier in the week and things were in full swing for the trade leg, and the annual show is on today and tomorrow. It's open to everyone, as long as your willing to stump up a tenner. For more, see http://www.britainandirelandevent.co.uk/consumer/visitors
