Staycations are increasingly popular – these minibreaks give us a reason to get out into the fresh air with our nearest and dearest, and experience all the amazing countryside the UK has to offer, it’s probably the easiest and most enjoyable way to make the most of our leisure time throughout the year.
Since 2010, tourism has been the fastest growing sector in the UK in employment terms and Britain is forecast to have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025.
It comes as no surprise to us, as the vast majority of our colleagues enjoy at least one break a year in the UK countryside and therefore regularly invest in it, and we don’t think we are that unusual. Whether it be a glamping weekend with friends, a wedding celebration, a family holiday or simply a visit to the local petting farm with the children on a weekend. These are all profitable opportunities that our clients are investing in and offering.
Our colleagues will be reporting back on their own staycations to demonstrate the breadth of experiences available in the UK countryside and the significant popularity they enjoy.
