Seeking information on the engagement of British ethnic groups in domestic tourism activities.
Another question, this time directly from me on the “Forum: ask questions get answers” section of Britishdestinations.net.
I’ve had reason to look at the evidence and research base around the scale of British ethnic minority engagement in domestic tourism and visitor economy activities. I wanted to identify whether there are any real or perceived barriers to full engagement and critically, if there are, what can be done to overcome the challenges and turn them into mutually beneficial opportunities. I am struggling to find any major robust, sources that cover the full range of potential issues. This suggests I may be: wrong about the existence of a problem (I doubt it), looking in the wrong places or, that this is an area in potential need of further investigation?
To make progress I need member destinations assistance to better understand where we are starting from and what if anything might need doing now.

Hi Peter, I seem to remember there was something undertaken by either the National Parks or the National Trust. but it was specifically about them using the open spaces. I think I remember an item on the today programme about the subject. It may not be what you are looking for as it was specific rather than general tourism, However it may be worth approaching those organisations to see if anything is available.

Good to hear from you. The NT sounds like my best bet so far.
Must try and meet up.

I believe the National Trust (and presumably other arts/heritage bodies) have done research in this field…

I am of the same view, but still struggling to locate anything sufficiently generic to apply to wider tourism. Thanks for your help I try NT directly.
