Bank Holiday August breaks travel records

According to figures recently released by VisitEngland, the August Bank Holiday brought a £2.1 billion boost to the UK economy thanks to us Brits taking a staycation. The highest since figures were originally recorded in 2012, a record number of brits planned travel in the UK across the August long weekend.

This growth represents a significant increase on 2018 figures and a year on year growth in the staycation.

VisitEngland’s director Patricia Yates commented: “We are hearing from many destinations and tourism businesses that they are experiencing a strong summer, with late bookings also on the rise this year.

“The certainty of budgeting for a holiday at home, the ease and convenience and the quality on offer are all contributing to people choosing to take more domestic trips, spreading the benefits of tourism across the UK.”

Tourism minister Rebecca Pow said: “The UK is the best place to holiday in the world – whether it be our historic castles, stunning landscapes or world-class museums and galleries there is truly something for everyone.

“Tourism makes a massive contribution to the UK economy.”
