English Tourism Week

An annual celebration of English tourism. A series of events showcasing visitor experiences in England. English Tourism Week highlights the value of tourism.

Taking place in spring each year, English Tourism Week campaigns to raise the profile of the industry and celebrate the value and quality of tourism in England. It provides you with a vehicle to kick start the season and promote your local tourism products. Whether you are an accommodation provider, an attraction, a tourist information centre or a destination, everyone can participate.

The English tourism sector touches everyone – visitors, residents, businesses and employees. It’s one of the few sectors active in every part of the country. It’s the third largest employer, every day supporting 2.6 million jobs and is a major employer of school leavers and young people and an incubator for entrepreneurs.

The visitor economy is worth £106 billion a year to England supporting thousands of businesses and impacting on the performance of supplier industries including farming, transport, retailing, sport, museums and galleries, the theatre and other performing arts. Tourism cannot be offshored – it only happens here! Find out below how to get involved.

English Tourism Week works best when everyone participates. So get involved today!
