Be Jubilant This June And Celebrate With An Overseas Adventure
If the recent unseasonably warm weather is not enough to inspire Brits to book their next break then June’s extra day’s holiday should be as the countdown to the Queen’s Jubilee begins.
With just under two months to go, it’s not too late for travellers wanting to make the most of the long weekend to take advantage of the double bank holiday bonanza.
