National B&B Week 2019
A huge thank you to the hundreds of properties, dozens of industry partners and main sponsors eviivo and the B&B Association, who helped make National B&B Week such a success!
In preparation for National B&B Week, eviivo sent a rather apprehensive Francis Boulle, of Made in Chelsea fame, to stay in a British B&B. The video has been viewed over 30,000 times to date.

Some of the many MP visits to B&B across the country, all shared on social media and with local and regional press:
“Our B&B’s are world-class. Four of TripAdvisor’s top five B&Bs in the world are in Britain and this is something that we want to capitalise on. Britain is open for business and National B&B Week is a great opportunity for us to showcase this dynamic sector. I hope we can encourage even more people to support British tourism and experience the superb places on offer all across the nation.”Michael Ellis
What is National B&B Week?
Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? We think that’s something worth celebrating!
That’s why in 2018 we created the UK’s first National B&B Day. The day was supported so well by many fantastic B&Bs and industry partners that we decided to go bigger and better for 2019, dedicating a whole week to the event.
The goals of National B&B Week are to:
- Get as many holidaymakers as possible staying in B&Bs over National B&B Week
- To raise the profile of the independent accommodation sector
We want everyone to know about B&Bs and how they’re the perfect place to stay.
