The annual celebration, English Tourism Week 2022, is back. It highlights the importance of tourism in the UK, highlighting its importance and value. English Tourism Week returns on Friday 18 March until Sunday 27 March 2022.

English Tourism Week 2022

Visit England leads the national tourism week celebration. It showcases the quality, range and value of English hotels, restaurants, visitor attractions and activities.

Tourism in England

Tourism and the hospitality industry is a massive contributor to the economy. English tourism makes up 80% of the UK’s visitor economy. In 2019 it generated £100 billion and supported 2.6 million jobs. 

The industry is a significant employer of school leavers and young people and an incubator for entrepreneurs. English Tourism Weeks is our opportunity to show you what the country offers.

Tourism happens here!

Many people think tourism is going on holiday or travelling for a staycation away from home, meaning we often overlook what is on our doorstep. When did you last visit a popular attraction nearby? Use this week to plan your next adventure.

Local tourism is just as important. When was the last time you ate out or visited your local tourist information centre? Have you attended any business events? The tourism industry also includes conferences, events and weddings.


Wide-open spaces and fresh sea air in Plymouth

Plymouth is known as Britain’s Ocean City and has 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. You can also find out more about Sir Francis Drake and his exploits during the Elizabethan era during your visit.

Bristol, a city like no other

The city of Bristol 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 the world-famous Banksy. Bristol was named the World’s Best Food Destination by the Food Trekking Awards. It is also well known for 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 a cycle-friendly city, making exploring the city centre, parks, and the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge even easier.
