England-Booking B&B on Holiday??
 
It looks like our England-Wales trip will commence around May 1.
It is my understanding that May 5th is a Bank Holiday.

Normally I only book our first night B&B in advance. However given that our first few days will be over a Bank Holiday weekend - should I book the entire weekend (or part of it) in advance? How hard is it in general to find a B&B that weekend? We will most likely be in Shropshire (maybe Ironbidge specifically) or North Wales for that weekend. Are those areas quite popular on Long weekends?

Also can anyone recommend a B&B in or near Ironbridge? And is it likely to be popular that weekend?

Thanks for any help!

Great question, topping for answers.
(we arrive Saturday 3rd May spending that night LHR & had planned to head to Brighton area on the Sunday)

YOu should be able to find something but to get much choice I would advise booking for the bank holidays.

I agree with nona. That bank holiday is the least busy of the year (as bank holidays go) but I would book ahead to be sure. Whilst you would probably be able to find something, for a wider choice, book ahead.

I agree with nona. That bank holiday is the least busy of the year since it does not fall during school holidays but I would book ahead to be sure. Whilst you would probably be able to find something, for a wider choice, book ahead.

Thx for advice - I am leaning towards booking ahead now - just to be sure and not stressed
