Stag parties who are hoping to enjoy a night out in Brighton may wish to book their accommodation sooner rather than later.
Local tourism officials have noted a surge in the number of holiday bookings and enquiries this year, as more and more people are taking breaks in the East Sussex town.
VisitBrighton revealed that bookings are up by 21 per cent this year, compared with 2008.
A spokesperson for the group believes this is partly because of the expense of travelling to Europe throughout the global financial crisis.
She commented: "The current exchange rate for the euro will hopefully mean that people in Britain who would have taken a city break in Prague, Athens or Paris will instead be looking at England."
Speaking to the Argus, the spokesperson added that while the organisation is not being complacent, it is anticipating a good year for the Brighton area.
UK tourist office VisitBritain recently said the country should be taking advantage of the current economic climate by encouraging more people to take domestic breaks.
