Duncan on the Isle of Wight promoting TourismDuncan Bannatyne has been doing his bit to promote the Isle of Wight. The Dragon Dens Millionaire has been filming the Great British Holiday Show and highlighting great things to see and do in the realms of the UK. It seems that he has left his pool side villa to head over to the Isle of Wight.

The six shows that are being filmed are exclusive to Virgin 1 and promote the great British getaway. Mr. Bannatyne said that “People should be holidaying here instead of going abroad”. Bannatyne went on to say “I sacrificed some of my break there to fly back to the UK to promote great British seaside towns.”

Duncan had been spotted in the small town of Sandown. The idea behind these shows is to capture the imagination of the great British public.

As Duncan has a background in the leisure industry and may prove to be the right candidate to rejuvenate the tourism industry. The local community is behind him and offered full support in a chance to unveil the mended shore attractions that the Isle of Wight has to offer, which in turn will hopefully bring people to the area.

Long gone are the days of the 60s when people went on family holidays in the UK and embraced the holiday park culture. The lure of foreign travel that became affordable was to take people away from the UK to destinations that not only offer hotter weather but a different cultural experience. As time has gone on people have chosen new destinations and it seems only now during a recession that people are considering a holiday in the UK. This downturn in the economy along with the promotion of wealthy businessman should put the UK in good stead in terms of travel.
Isle of Wight Hotels are hoping that the attention that is brought to the Island by Mr. Bannatyne and the media should see bookings on the rise. If you are looking for a place to stay then why not visit this popular Isle of Wight Accommodation site today.
