Have you enjoyed a fantastic day out or staycation in the UK?

Throughout the 2019 Summer School Holidays we’re offering young people aged between 10 – 16 years old the chance to have their work published on The Tourist Trail Blog.


We have three great prizes for our favourite entries:

First Prize – A family ticket to any Attraction listed on our website

Second Prize – £75 of book tokens

Third Prize – £25 of book tokens

We aim to publish as many blog posts as possible (so long as they make it past our trusty content writer!)

How to enter

Simply submit a blog post of at least 500 words relating to a day out or holiday you have had in the UK

Send this to info@thetouristtrail.org (high quality images/videos are welcome)

You can accompany this with a sentence describing yourself which will be included in your author bio
