That said, it’s totally true that we’re on the cusp of launching a fresh new design for our website, which will come around in May. Keep your eyes peeled for that one.
If you liked this little ruse, have a quick look at these famous April Fools’ hoaxes:
1. San Serriffe
In 1977 British newspaper The Guardian reported that it had identified a new island called San Serriffe, located in the Indian Ocean.
2. The Jupiter Effect
In 1976 famous astronomer Sir Patrick Moore announced that Earth’s gravity would be suddenly reduced thanks to a specific planetary alignment.
3. Flying penguins
In 2008 the BBC released a video of flying penguins that migrate to spend the Antarctic winter in South American rainforest:
4. Nessie found
5. New York’s parade
6. The Derbyshire Fairy
Finally, how could we leave out Derbyshire? Occupying a central role in a multitude of global fields including industry, politics, the arts and the natural world, Derbyshire is regarded by many as the magic epicentre of Britain. Not so surprising, then, that the Derbyshire Fairy was discovered in 2007.
Of course, this is just our pick of the bunch, but there’s loads more out there to have a chuckle at.
If staying in a palace isn’t really within your means, why not have a look at some of our budget accommodation as an alternative?
We wish everybody a fantastic April.
