This is the best hotel in Birmingham – where people walk around naked
The Clover Hotel and Spa is ranked #1 on the travel website, out of 117 hotels in our city

When it comes to getting away from it all in Birmingham – you are spoilt for choice.

From five-star luxury to quaint boutique rooms, to budget stays and themed hotels, there is something for everyone.

Travel website TripAdvisor has used customer reviews to recognise the city’s best hotels, spas and B&Bs by ranking them on location, cleanliness, service and value.

But the number one hotel in Birmingham might come as a surprise.

Top ranking across the whole city is the Clover Hotel and Spa.

But the venue, nestled between a nursery and residential housing on the busy Chester Road in Erdington, isn’t all it seems.

Because owner Tim Higgs has fulfilled a naked ambition – by turning the detached family home into a naturist hotel.

And the clothing-optional venue has become a hit with customers who are clambering to stay at the swish pad – which also boasts a hot tub in the private garden.

Of the 312 reviews on TripAdvisor, 278 are excellent and the rest ‘good’.

He said: “Myself and a group of friends started hiking to really remote locations. “We’d often find swimming holes and there was never anyone around so we naturally just stripped off and jumped in. “I got a few snaps of our bums in nature and shared it to my personal Instagram and the response was generally along the lines of ‘good on you’ and ‘looks like fun.’ “So I decided to create an Instagram page and call it Get Naked Australia.”

200 naked people vs the police: The battle to be nude on East Yorkshire beach
Fraisthorpe beach near Bridlington has long been associated with naturism

But that all changed in the late 1990s.

Fears new tourist attraction will expose children to nudists on Brighton beach

Families may get a bit of an eyeful when they try out Brighton’s latest tourist attraction.

A new 16-metre high rope walk and climbing tower has been approved at Peter Pan’s Adventure Golf on the seafront.

But police warned that children may be able to see nudists from the top.

Neville Wren, Designing Out Crime Officer at Sussex Police, said parents might be concerned about what their children might see.

He said: “This facility is most likely to provide activities for various age groups from school age children to adults. It is closer to the beach than Marine Drive or Dukes Mound, and from the raised platform positions it possibly provides closer views across the beach towards the Naturalist Beach nearby which in turn may cause unexpected concerns from the parents of young children.”

The section of naturist beach near the marina is signposted on the beach to warn passers by what they might see.

The rope walk was approved by planners at Brighton and Hove City Council. Continued…Read full original article…

Bare Market: More than 300 naturalists to go nude to Howe Caverns

Summertime is prime time for a visit to Howe Caverns, the hot-weather destination in Schoharie County that has lured thousands to partake in atmospheric spelunking 15 stories underground. From impressive rock formations to other geological wonders, Howe Caverns rates as a must-see.

On Saturday, July 14, however, there will be much more to see than stalactites and stalagmites. In celebration of International Nude Day, Howe Caverns will host “Naked in a Cave,” extending an offer to nudists to spend an evening engaged in au naturel activities. Even Sarah Danser, a survivalist star of the Discovery Channel’s cultish reality series Naked and Afraid, heard about Howe’s special occasion and will travel from Honolulu to the Cobleskill area to get in on the action.

It wasn’t hard to rouse attention for this unique event. Howe general manager April Islip simply posted the news on the venue’s Facebook page at the end of April, and she’s been fielding inquiries ever since. Islip said “Naked in a Cave” is a response to requests from nudist groups for years about holding such an event amid Howe’s natural surroundings.

So how far away are people traveling for this night? “We have a couple flying in from Chicago and a couple from the Washington, D.C., area,” Islip said, “and we have a big party coming from Virginia.”

Regarding the nudist enclaves that are closer to home, Islip noted, “We have a lot from the Massachusetts-Berkshires area, there are quite a few from Troy, and a lot from Rochester are coming.” The event is “close to a sellout,” Islip said at press time, with a maximum head count of 350.

Naturists are invited to a giant picnic in Paris

If you’re a fan of shedding your clothes, you may be interested to learn that a giant picnic will be held in a public park in Paris to celebrate the inaugural Journée Parisienne du Naturisme (Parisian Day of Naturism).

The event is being run by the ANP L’Association des Naturistes de Paris and the plan is that it will be held in future on the last Sunday of June annually. This year, a yoga class will be held at 11.30am followed by the picnic, and the event itself runs from 10am to 6pm. The naturist area at the park opened for two months in 2017, and has re-opened for six months this year, forming part of the city’s “open-minded vision for the use of Parisian public spaces.” The zone is open between 8am and 7.30pm near the park’s bird reserve until October.
