UK Holiday Makers Taking Tours Of London Instead Of Holidaying Abroad

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 26, 2009 -- Whilst the credit crunch has largely affected both domestic and overseas holiday destinations London seems to have profited in terms of an increase in UK citizens visiting its attractions.

Graham Powell of London tours company, Country Travel Tours, says: “We’ve definitely noticed an increase in demand for our London tour [http://www.countrytraveltours.co.uk] guide service and more than ever our customers are UK residents, many even local to London.

As well as an increase in London tours, London’s museums and galleries have reported increases in visitor numbers. This trend has also spread to the rest of the UK and is thought to be a result of a decrease in people’s disposable income and a view that a cheap or even free visit to the local museum is a good alternative to an expensive night out on the town.

One interesting twist on this apparent good news is that most London hotels are reporting declining occupancy levels which would seem to contradict any apparent influx in domestic visitors to London. However many believe that this is simply indicative of the nature of the visits to London. Graham Powell explains: “What we have been seeing is more day trippers coming to London rather than say week long holiday makers using our London tour [http://www.countrytraveltours.co.uk] service. Also a lot of people tell us they are staying with relatives either in or close to London as opposed to booking paid accommodation in the city.”
