The Oriel Davies Gallery is celebrating the humble B&B with an exhibition called Be Our Guest

More than 30 artists have worked on various rooms that people might see in an average B&B. The gallery's fictional property is called Seaview

The term B&B was forged in the UK after World War II when numerous foreigners needed a place to stay, said the gallery

People opened their homes and started serving breakfast to overnight guests

Moving forward into the 1960s and 1970s, B&Bs entered the cultural psyche as travelling and holidays became more viable

Then and now, the B&B has often been a favoured stopover and cheaper alternative to many hotels. The exhibition in Newtown runs until 4 September
