Survey finds mixed fortunes for industry

VISITBRITAIN have released the initial results of their UK Tourism Survey, revealing the full year domestic tourism data for 2007.
It has revealed that the number of overnight trips made in the UK fell by two per cent during the year, with revenue from these stays rising only one per cent to £21.2bn.
However, results were more positive from a tourism perspective, as holiday trips reversed their decline, growing by one per cent in volume and five per cent in value.
The report suggested that the overall decline was probably more related to economic factors rather than UK tourism performance and blamed falls in business and value for revenue.
