Weaker Pound makes this the time to Visit England

18 October 2019

The value of the pound has been sliding on international currency markets, declining nearly 5% since the Brexit vote in June.

Sterling has fallen to a three-year low against the euro after Theresa May outlined the timetable for starting Brexit negotiations. It also hit its lowest level against the dollar since the beginning of July. On Sunday, the prime minister said she would trigger Article 50, the clause needed to start the process, by the end of March 2017. That means the UK is likely to leave the EU by mid-2019. In early morning trade, the pound fell by about 1% against the euro to €1.1433 before recovering slightly. It was also down 1% against the dollar at $1.2854 at one point, its lowest since 6 July, when it hit $1.2797.

If you've ever though about joining the Queen for Tea, Marching with the Guards, doing the Lambeth Walk or walking further afield in Oxford, Cotswolds, Yorkshire or the Lakes District - nows the time to Explore Britain.

Just want to let you know that grandson Tommy & I really enjoyed the hike and all of your scheduling and accommodations were excellent! We even had pretty good weather with some rain & cold & wind, but nothing severe. Your timing was good, too, as it snowed the night after we arrived in Fort William and all of the mountain tops were covered in snow!

All of the B&B`s were really nice and enjoyable - very friendly. It was a good introduction to Scotland for Tommy and another wonderful experience for me. The West Highland Way is a nice way to see that area and we met lots of friendly hikers from other places - even some from Scotland. Glasgow and Edinburgh are interesting & fun, but the walk was our most favorite part of the adventure. We hope to do more! Thanks for helping to make this a memorable experience
