National Countryside Week is championed by The Prince’s Countryside Fund.
It aims to raise awareness of the importance of the countryside to the UK and to
recognise the people working tirelessly to maintain and promote rural Britain.
There are two main aims of National Countryside Week:
- Get outside and enjoy the countryside - Whether on your
doorstep or further afield, take some time to discover our beautiful natural
landscape and appreciate the people that work tirelessly to ensure it remains
the place we all love and adore.
- Celebrate the best of British food and drink - With so many
fabulous products home grown on our doorstep and so many great places to eat &
drink, try something new this season.
Here are a few suggestions of activities and food & drink you might like to
try this week:
