Warwickshire tourism set for a record tourist invasion this year

Published on : Tuesday, January 3, 2017

warwickshire-tourismWarwickshire is all set for a tourist influx this year, worth up to £15million to the local economy. The county has worth visiting attractions all over like Warwick Castle, the Royal Shakespeare Company and the recently-opened Rugby World Hall of Fame. The tourism sector is a major component of the county’s economy. Tourists from outside spent more than £100million in Warwickshire in 2015.

This figure is expected to rise sharply as visitors from all over the world, especially from the U.S. and Europe take advantage of Sterling’s post-Brexit devaluation. Dave Ayton-Hill, Warwickshire County Council’s economy and skills group manager predicts that there would be very positive impact on tourism in short and medium terms. To quote Dave, “The significant and sustained devaluation of sterling, particularly against the dollar and euro, will encourage more overseas visitors to come to the UK this year.


And with so many fantastic attractions in Warwickshire, we can expect to welcome our share.” He said that they expect extra £2.5million spend from visitors from the US and £5.3million from Europe. He added that Warwickshire’s tourist industry is traditionally strong and globally renowned. To quote Dave, “Warwickshire’s hospitality towards tourists has always been very warm and welcoming and that will continue to be the case.”
