HOW IT ALL BEGAN
We were founded in 2018 by Claire Robinson, an award-winning writer, digital creative, British Guild of Travel Writers member and avid short breaker who had trouble finding one central resource to plan great weekends in the UK. So with little more that a burning desire to inspire other weekenders, Weekend Candy began as website a digital weekend planning and inspiration platform. In 2019, Weekend Candy introduced its portfolio of Partners -unique and original places to eat, stay, do, and enjoy.
The idea was inspired by Claire’s UK travels. Over the years, she’d discovered (and fallen in love with) many brilliant small businesses who are out there, bringing their unique vision to life. And so, Weekend Candy began its Partnership Collection – The Weekend Wishlist – as an easy way to share special hospitality businesses with more weekenders. And, in turn, give those businesses an opportunity to use Weekend Candy to become more visible and connect with more customers.
