White bed linen at the ready for waterway resorts
This bank holiday, Britons may wish to take advantage of the time off work by getting away from it all at one of the UK's multitude of places of interest.
And B&Bs and hotels lucky enough to be situated next to some of Britain's waterways may wish to get out their best white bed linen, as they could see a particular influx of interest this weekend.
Simon Salem, marketing director at British Waterways, said the UK has a 200-year-old network of canals and rivers snaking through its ever-changing landscape, which could make following them a unique way to discover more of what the country has to offer.
"There is no better way to explore and experience the diversity of the great British landscape than from the deck of a gently chugging narrowboat," he added.
And with an abundance of B&Bs taking advantage of the idyllic settings, Britons do not have to spend the night on a boat if they do not wish, but could enjoy the comfort of a hot shower with warm wholesale towels, followed by a good night's sleep.
Following the recent volcanic ash cloud, a poll by travelsupermarket.com has revealed that 13 per cent of Britons have now planned a no-flight trip.
