English Tourism Week 2020
The annual celebration, English Tourism Week, has never been more important. Once we are all out of these unprecedented times, hotels, restaurants and tourist destinations will be reliant on travellers to get their business back up and running.
English Tourism Week is a week-long celebration showcasing the quality and vibrancy of the visitor experiences and the value our industry brings to our nation. English Tourism Week will be celebrated between 18th-25th April in 2020. It is the perfect opportunity for you to discover different parts of the country, and put them on your ‘must visit’ list for when you can travel.
Tourism and the hospitality industry is a massive contributor to the economy. English tourism makes up 80% of the UK’s visitor economy and generates £106 billion a year. It supports 2.6 million jobs and is a significant employer of school leavers and young people. English Tourism Weeks is our opportunity to show you what the country has to offer.

Plymouth is known as Britain’s Ocean City and has so much to explore. Walk down the cobbled streets and around the picturesque harbours of The Barbican, Sutton Harbour and Royal William Yard. Get some fresh air as you walk around Plymouth Hoe which overlooks the waters of Plymouth Sound. Venture a little further and see the incredible wild beauty of Dartmoor National Park. History is also a big part of what has made Plymouth. Later in 2020, we are getting ready to celebrate Mayflower 400. During your visit, you can also find out more about Sir Francis Drake’s and his exploits during the Elizabethan era.
The city of Bristol really grew during the Industrial Revolution. As a major port, ships came from all over the world. Now it is well known for its quirkiness. As you explore, you will see street art, including that of the world-famous Banksy. Bristol was named as the World’s Best Food Destination last year by Food Trekking Awards. It is also well known as being one of the most vegan-friendly cities, and each year hosts Vegfest which attracts over 25,000 people. On top of this, Bristol has won multiple green awards for its commitment to the environment. It has been named as a cycle-friendly city, making exploring the city centre, parks and of course the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge even easier.
