The national tourism agency found 42 per cent of international visitors leaving UK felt extremely welcome in Britain, which is more than double the 19% who said they felt this way in 2009 and an increase on 30% in 2012.
Tracey Crouch, minister for tourism, said: “It’s great to see that more overseas tourists are getting a world class welcome when they visit us. UK tourism is a global success story and more tourists leaving with positive memories of their stay can only help spread the word that the UK is the place to visit.”
The nationalities who felt the most welcome were Danes and Canadians, closely followed by people from Sweden, India and the USA, the survey revealed.
The Britain’s welcome to overseas visitors’ report also found 89% of the 5,000 people surveyed either felt extremely or quite welcome in Britain and 93% of those were extremely or very likely to recommend a visit to family and friends.
