The joint promotions have been designed around Great Britain's three most essential offerings – Rail Journeys, Food & Drink itineraries and experiential tours.

The tourism board along with Cox & Kings have also entwined enticing Food & Drink tours giving an opportunity to food lovers to discover Great Britain beyond its scenic sites.

VisitBritain's Interim Director APMEA Tricia Warwick said 'Britain is packed full of amazing experiences all year round and with our visitor attractions, hotels and shops offering good value for Indian travellers, 2018 is great time to travel. From the vibrancy of Britain's cool cities to its stunning countryside, from its local food and drink experiences to exciting sporting events, we want to inspire visitors to book a trip right now. VisitBritain is excited to continue our global partnership with Cox & Kings and further raise Britain's profile as a great place to visit for Indian tourists.'

'London and Beyond', 'Belmond Royal Scotsman', 'Royal Heritage', 'Exploring England, North Wales and Scotland' and 'Scotland at its Best' are few of the fascinating rail journeys that are being promoted through the ongoing campaign.
