Staycation Britain says ‘hey, ho’ to August wind and rain

The UK is drenched by record rainfall. But visitors in and around Stratford-upon-Avon are making the best of it At the end of a summer’s afternoon in Stratford-upon-Avon, Jennifer Nash shivers, adjusts the scarf around her neck and pulls the hood of her anorak over her head. “If it was nice we’d be walking around doing things – we’d go out on the boats,” she says, surveying the cold grey water of the Avon and the equally grey skies in the distance. “But instead we’re just going to go back to the hotel and get warm.” Nash and her husband, David, are taking what record numbers of Britons were predicted to take this year: a staycation, eschewing fancy foreign climes with their troublesome temperatures and expensive currencies in favour of the dependable charms of home. They are also following another trend: taking a short break, in their case a three-day trip from their Middlesex home.

* New offshore wind power is now cheaper than nuclear in Britain. “Today’s results mean that both onshore and offshore wind are cheaper than gas and nuclear,” noted trade body RenewableUK in a statement on Monday. The price of electricity from offshore wind in Britain has dipped below the level guaranteed to Hinkley Point, raising questions about the construction of the vast nuclear power station. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy disclosed Monday the results of auctions for state subsidies for three new wind offshore farms. Lawmaker Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party, said the massive price drop for offshore wind should be the “nail in the coffin” for new nuclear power.
