National B&B Week 2019
18-24 March

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

Minister for Arts, Heritage, and Tourism

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:

  1. Get as many holidaymakers as possible staying in B&Bs over National B&B Week
  2. 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.
