Great Britain has 187 hidden gems sitting right on our door steps that Brits seem to be ignoring. Whether it would be visiting the world’s smallest chapel in Guernsey or taking the family to see some puffins in the Shetland Islands it seems we’re missing a trick as nearly half (49%) of Brits have never visited any of them.
Further, a third of Brits (33%) when asked couldn’t even identify England on a map, with nearly two in five (35%) of people not being able to identify Ireland. To make matters worse nearly half of the UK have never even heard of Guernsey!
According to new research by Premier Inn one in 12 (8%) hadn’t heard of any of the islands that surround Great Britain despite Brits now wanting a ‘middi-break’ without the long-haul flight and opting for an island getaway instead.
Aston spoke to Alice Teacake, travel blogger and influencer to discuss the beautiful unknown British Isles and how there’s a variety of places to visit on a ‘middi-break’ without having to spend hours on a flight.
