Tourists head off to distant parts of country

British flag, Tourism outside London risen to its highest level - SantanderCB

New figures show that tourism outside London has risen to its highest level since the financial crisis. According to Visit Britain, trips to cities outside the capital rose by 4.71% in the first nine months of 2015 compared with the same period the year before. Between January and September last year, some 14.87m visited Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and English cities outside London, against a previous high of 14.52m in 2008. Peter Alderson, managing director at LDF, a finance provider, said traditional hotels had benefited from the boost to regional tourism. He said profit margins at 1,800 surveyed hotels rose to 4.5% last year compared with 3.5% the year before, driven by a boost in occupancy levels outside London.
