Published on : Thursday, August 31, 2017

LincolnshireFresh figures indicate that the value of the tourism sector of Lincolnshire has increased by over £300 million since the last five years, reaching £1.37 billion in the year 2016.

 

As per the latest STEAM statistics, in 2016 the nation had lured in about 20 million tourists marking a rise of more than three million than it witnessed in 2011.

 

This has gone a long way in raising the value of the tourism economy of the country by approximately 30% over that five year period. Councillor Colin Dave who is an executive member for economic development at Lincolnshire County Council stated that tourism is a crucial industry for the economy of the country, since it employs more than 19,000 people.

 

Colin Dave went on to add that right from the refurbishment of Lincoln Castle to the new visitor centre at Gibralter Point and also the outdoor theatre space at Chapel St Leonards, they were making the best efforts to ensure that Lincolnshire continues to draw tourists all through the year.

 

He also feels that with the RAF centenary in 2018 and Mayflower 400 celebrations in 2020, the tourism economy of this region would continue to thrive and has adequate growth potential.
