Wowcher's mystery £149 holidays are back - with new bucket list experiences

The twist? You won't find out where you're heading until after you've booked - so there's no choosing where you go or what you'll see.

We're talking tours of the Niagara Falls, a trip to India including the Taj Mahal, watching the Northern Lights in Iceland, gondola rides in Venice and plenty more brilliant offerings.

- click here for all the T&Cs.

Huge rise in spending by British tourists

The Germans continue to be the biggest source of tourism revenues for Greece, even if their spending did post a 0.2 percent decline in 2019 compared to 2018, taking it to 2.956 billion euros, according to Bank of Greece data.

In contrast, takings from British tourists posted a major increase, as they reached 2.556 billion, up by 31.9 percent from 2018.

Flat with picturesque river view sells for just £1 because it is impossible to access and has never been occupied

A flat in the centre with stunning riverside views in the centre of a Cambridgeshire town has been sold for £1 at auction. But there's a catch: the property has no entrance and no one knows what’s inside.

The one-room, 129sq ft home has bridges an alleyway between a Chinese takeaway and an insurance firm in Wisbech, near Ely.

It has no external doors and there is no formal access route into the flat – which boasts a window overlooking the river Nene - from either neighbouring business. There is also no record of anyone having lived at the address or used it for any other purpose.

Despite that, the mysterious 16th century property sold at auction after a local businessman lodged a last-minute £1 bid.
