Significant Day Visitor Numbers Announced By VisitEngland

VisitEngland has published the end of year results for the Day Visitor Survey, showing a large increase in both visitor numbers and expenditure.

The number of visits is up 11% for the year at 1.71bn , while expenditure on Day Visits is up 10% to £57.1bn

This is an increase in expenditure of £5bn over 2011 – which is sufficient to generate in the order of 100,000 new jobs. Although inflation and the unwillingness of businesses to employ more staff until they are confident of growth will mean that the actual number of jobs generated is probably lower, the figures do suggest that one tourism is one of the areas that significantly contributed to the 584,000 jobs created in 2012.
