Summer is a delightful time for travelling around Britain and Ireland - and not just for the fine, sunny days. It is the season of celebration and there is an incredible number of festivals and events happening throughout July and August.
From the wacky and unique to the internationally renowned, virtually every village, town or city has something going on.
Next week, Harrogate will put on its annual celebration of all things agriculture in the Great Yorkshire Show while the world's greatest classical music festival, The Proms, returns to London. Scotland's capital, Edinburgh, is hosting its famous Fringe Festival and the thrill and glamour of horse racing hits a high mark at the Galway Races in Ireland.
