North Yorkshire sees growing interest from tourists

People could be put off planning holidays and stag weekends overseas as a result of the weakening pound, but they are determined not to miss out altogether.

Various parts of the UK are experiencing a boost in visitor numbers and tourism bosses across the country are planning ahead for a bumper summer - and North Yorkshire is no different.

Businesses and attractions in the region have experienced a surge in bookings as the unfavourable exchange rate continues to put people off flights overseas, the Press reports.

Susan Briggs of the Yorkshire moors and coast tourism partnership told the newspaper that Brits are determined not to forfeit their holidays in light of the credit crunch.

"I think it's because people want to have something very definite to look forward to and come what may, they want a holiday," she said.

Stag parties may no longer be able to afford the expense of a flight to traditional locations in Europe like Amsterdam stag weekends, but UK cites could still present attractive destinations for revellers.

Liverpool could prove popular with those planning a stag weekend after the Liverpool Echo revealed that the Campaign for Real Ale is stepping up its attempts to make the city "a national centre for beer tourism".ADNFCR-2122-ID-19018847-ADNFCR
