Just as we were all allowing ourselves to dream about the prospect of finally jetting off to sunnier climes again, we’re being advised that foreign travel is still not a realistic ambition for 2021. Despite the success of the vaccination programme in the UK, the pandemic is continuing to cause disruption across the world and it’s impossible to predict, with certainty, when we’ll be able to check in at the airport once more.
39.4 million visitors a year cannot be wrong
Ah well, luckily, we happen to live on one of the most beautiful islands on the planet. Despite the odd drop of rain during the summer months, the United Kingdom is still in the world’s top 10 tourist destinations – ahead of many popular holiday spots such as Australia, Greece and Portugal – with over 39.4 million visitors in 2019.
This year presents the perfect opportunity to find out what the rest of the world sees in beauty spots such as Cornwall, the New Forest, the Gower Peninsula, the Lake District, the Derbyshire Dales and the Scottish Highlands. Or to explore some of our most characterful towns and cities like Brighton, Edinburgh, York, Cambridge and, of course, London. Particularly as there will be plenty of room in the best hotels and restaurants since all our usual visitors from abroad will be stuck at home, just like us.
Staycation with style
The more you think about it, the more attractive the prospect of a staycation becomes. To help you make the most of your holiday at home, we have a selection of luxury travel items that are sure to add to your enjoyment.
Items such as our Single Watch Pouch in navy. Made from a choice of durable soft leather or canvas, our pouch is the perfect place to keep your watch safe on your travels. Due to the nature of the materials used, each hand-crafted case has a distinctive appearance of its own that improves with the passing of time.

For the very best of British, we can offer you an elegant Watch Roll that derives from a special collaboration between Rapport and Johnston’s of Elgin.
