Britain set for tourist boom

17 Feb 2009

People booking stag parties in popular UK cities such as Brighton and Newquay may need to get in quick to avoid being beaten to the best deals.

VisitBritain is keen to ensure that tourists around the world are aware of what Britain has to offer, which could bring a rise in the number of people visiting resorts across the country.

The organisation's press and public relations manager Elliot Frisby claimed that the current weakness of the pound could attract a number of overseas tourists to the UK.

He said: "The rise of short breaks means that many of our visitors will think nothing of popping over for a long weekend at the last minute."

VisitBritain is also asking for £6.5 million from the government to help launch a major campaign to market the UK to international visitors, which is expected to start in April.

The tourist boom could also mean that many hotels, bars and attractions around the country are upgraded, providing better options for those looking to celebrate their stag weekend in the UK.

According to, the number of tourists booking one-night holidays and short city breaks in Britain has increased significantly over the past year.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19029792-ADNFCR
