As we approach the 3rd month of 2011 already and look (hopefully) to put the colder, darker winter months behind us it is time to look forward lighter evenings, warmer weather and for many a mini mid-year break!
With the Government backing an extended bank holiday period to celebrate the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, there is an opportunity to have 11 straight days off from the world of work, which for many outside enthusiasts is a dream-come-true. While a large pile of people will head for the airports, increasing numbers will be heading for the English hills as the ‘stay-cation’ trend looks set to continue.
This news makes Ian Brookes, founder of outdoor clothing retailer outdoorlook.co.uk, a happy man, as the discount retail site has a catalogue to compliment any Great British outdoor enthusiast.
“The trend to ‘stay-cations’ is something we picked up on last year and with the cost of flights abroad continually rising, it is no surprise its popular,” said Brookes
With the royal wedding and the festivities that come with it, many people are thought to be even shunning the hills and heading for London to camp. Either way, the right attire is crucial for successful and comfortable trip.
“Our range of outdoor clothing is suitable for the dedicated hiker or the casual camper. The range covers t shirts to socks, fleeces to action trousers.”
