If you’ve been to The Caravan & Motorhome Show in previous years and think you’ve seen it all before, there’s something else that’s new for 2014 that might make you think again. Great Days Out brings together destination ideas and tourist attractions from across the UK to help you plan the perfect break. From the hands-on Wedgwood Visitor Centre to breathtaking stately homes and fun filled family days out, there’s surely something for everyone and plenty to get you thinking.

So if by now you’re thinking you’ll need to plan a pitstop or two to fuel your day out, fear not. The new Heart of England Fine Foods Market and World Entertainment & Cookery Stage might just come to the rescue.

And, of course, don’t forget to visit us! Practical Caravan will be at stand 2-1. Also, for the first time, our Owner Satisfaction Survey awards ceremony is open to the public and we’d love to see you there. Follow the signs and join in from 3pm on Thursday 23 January 2014, the opening day of the show.
