Hever Castle is encouraging people to Escape The Everyday with a visit this autumn.

The historic attraction is taking part in the VisitEngland UK-wide campaign to encourage people to take a domestic break during autumn and winter.

The Escape the Everyday campaign aims to showcase the vibrant cities, breathtaking countryside and coastal locations that the UK has to offer.

The campaign will focus on three key themes – Discovery, Freedom to Explore and Treat Yourself.

Visitors to Hever Castle are encouraged to Escape the Everyday by discovering the vast history of the Castle and gardens, exploring the 125 acres of outdoor space and treating themselves to a stay at the 5* bed and breakfast. will also contain ideas and links to information on autumn and winter activities and experiences across the nations and regions.

Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston said: “Summer may be coming to an end but the UK-wide Escape the Everyday campaign will help get great British breaks booked through the autumn and beyond.

“There is so much to enjoy right across the UK and the changing of the seasons is the perfect time for a change of scene. We have been helping the industry get back up and running safely throughout the summer but it is important that we continue to support the sector and do our bit where we can to boost local economies by experiencing the best of the UK.”

VisitEngland Director of Marketing Clare Mullin said: “Tourism needs all of us to make sure it gets back on its feet to once again be one of the most successful sectors of the UK economy. Businesses lost months of trading this year. Extending the season through the lean shoulder months and building confidence in taking a domestic trip is critical for the millions of jobs and local economies that rely on tourism right across the country.

“We have an outstanding year-round tourism offer, from cosy coastal retreats to waterway adventures, from our vibrant food scene to our world-renowned cultural and heritage attractions. Working with destinations and tourism businesses we can inspire people to explore and rediscover what’s here on our doorstep, following official guidance, and also help build the habit of a lifetime, boosting the economy now and driving growth from tourism in the future.

“Businesses and visitor attractions right across the country have also been working flat-out to welcome visitors back safely, adapting and innovating to meet new ways of working and still providing a great experience. They will be very pleased to see you.”

The Escape the Everyday campaign, part of the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign, is expected to generate more than 200,000 additional domestic overnight holiday trips in the UK.
