TOURISTS from across the world are flocking to Britain in unprecedented numbers the wake of the Brexit vote.
The decreased value of the pound has encouraged tourism in the UK
Not fabulous news for British tourists heading abroad but a bargain for millions of tourists, who are now flocking into the UK in order to make the most of the advantageous exchange rates.
The number of Europeans planning to visit the UK is up by more than five per cent – meaning another 1.5 million will be spending money here.
But, post-Brexit, it is the rise in bookings from outside the EU that is the most astonishing: an increase of 8.6 per cent – equating to about 3 MILLION more tourists. Foreign tourists coming from outside the eurozone tend to visit the UK in the autumn, as it can take several months for them to get a visa.
