Recession will lead to more people exploring the UK, says expert

The tough economic climate has led to more people taking weekend breaks and exploring the UK, according to an expert.

Ellie Harrison, broadcaster and presenter on Countryfile, said that it is interesting to go and see what the country has to offer as there will be plenty of destinations which travellers have not been to before.

Referring to Northern Ireland, Ms Harrison said: "There are lots of outdoorsy type people, so for people who are into sports they have got lots of great golf courses, there is amazing walking over there, more mountains, there are amazing woodlands."

Belfast also hosts the Titanic festival, while an exhibition called Land of the Giants – held at the location where the famous ship was built – puts on a show of acrobatics, aerial dance and music.

The Northern Irish capital is also home to the Odyssey Arena, which welcomes Westlife, Patrick Kielty and Strictly Come Dancing next year.
