Britain’s Best Surprise has now launched in Northamptonshire!
Northamptonshire has been considered to be Britain’s best-kept secret… until now! Britain’s Best Surprise is a campaign designed to show everyone all of the wonderful things that Northamptonshire has to offer. For example, we are the county with the highest number of historic houses in the UK.
Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire, David Laing, unveiled the tourism campaign on the 27th March 2017 at Boughton House. He said: “A year ago a working party of Deputy Lieutenants, Lord Spencer, James Lowther and James Miller started to consider what the county (Northamptonshire) had to offer the visitor and were astonished at what was available.
The different elements have since come together and today, courtesy of the Duke of Buccleuch, the resulting campaign showcases brilliantly all that this historic county has to offer.”
