This year's Caravan, Camping and Motorhome show at Birmingham's NEC is one of the busiest we can remember! It's fallen over half term and the organisers ,The NCC, have made sure to cater for the whole family, with all sorts of activities to keep the kids entertained, including ice skating, wall climbing and dog agility shows, there won't be any bored half-termers.

As much as it's great to keep the little ones entertained, we're all here to inspire ourselves for the touring year ahead, get a peek at some of the latest innovations and see how we can elevate our leisure experiences to make the most of our well-earned leisure time and hard-earned cash.

TV favourite Matt Allwright and The Caravan and Motorhome Club's very own Harvey Alexander give us a flavour of how you can best utilise your time at the show and why February's NEC exhibition is such a great way to inspire the tourers in us all!

Let us know your plans for navigating the show below and, as always, if you see us come and say hello.
