I have added a copy of VisitBritain’s latest edition of Foresight to our VB Foresight library. Edition 164 looks at the regional spread of inbound tourism to the Nations and Regions of the UK in 2017.
It contains relatively high level data with a smattering of references to destinations (the top 5 in each Home Nation/ English region), there are also links to data on day trips to destinations by overseas visitors (page 44) which takes in a much larger number of destinations, including many in membership of British Destinations (this report was previously added in 2018 to our main research & statistics library). The entire Foresight report is at the very least worth scanning, if only to help contrast and compare the recent historic spread of both visits and value of international tourism across the UK. Research practitioners or destination mangers with a more detailed interest in statistic may wish to examine the report and its source data more closely.
The report is the same/much the same as that originally published online by VB in August 2018, using the then provisional ONS figures for 2017. These will by now have been confirmed, hence I assume the formal publication as yet another of VB’s excellent and informative Foresight series.
All the last 40 or so Foresight are available in one place within the * VisitBritain section of our members’ protected area: https://britishdestinations.net/members-area/content/visitbritain-november-2013-latest-edition-of-forsight-and-vb-trend-updates/ (paragraph 3)
