Devon Surf & Turf

Take a look at a recent article from This Is Devon about UK tourism and our involvement through uktourism.co.uk


The Westcountry’s magnificent beaches and unspoilt countryside have netted it top spot in the league of Britain’s holiday destinations.


According to travel website www.uktourism.co.uk, information about Devon and Cornwall was the most requested by people searching for a holiday.


Three brochures from Devon and two from Cornwall dominated the top ten list, beating Cumbria and the Lake District, East Anglia and perennial favourite Blackpool.


Ginna Clark from www. uktourism.co.uk said it seems that visitors could not get enough of a region whose attractions ranged from spectacular natural beauty to top notch visitor centres.


“It’s no great surprise that the Westcountry continues to attract vast numbers of tourists thanks to its milder climate and outstanding scenery and beaches,” she said.


“Cornwall is clearly a draw for surfers, and our Gardens of Cornwall brochure, which includes the world-renowned Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project, has been one of our most popular.”


Other areas in the South West also fared well, she said.


“Neighbouring Dorset is also still growing in popularity despite not making the top ten, in fact the number of requests so far in 2011 has already doubled from this time last year.”


The survey was published ahead of British Tourism Week which starts on March 12 Riding high… the Westcountry tops the UK’s holiday destinations.

Scottish Walks

Take a look at a recent article from Travel Daily about UK tourism and our involvement through uktourism.co.uk


Travellers aged 18-30 have been the most keen to snap up a ‘Walk in Scotland’ brochure, according to new data. Ginna Clark from uktourism.co.uk, which promotes holidays in the UK and compiled the results, believes the popularity of the brochure in the youth market shows that young people are carbon-friendly and keen to get outdoors. “Our ‘Walk in Scotland’ brochure, which proved very popular with holiday makers, received over 60% of its requests from 18-30 years olds, 60% of whom were female, demonstrating that it’s frequently the women who have a major influence over the choice of where to holiday,” she said. “It may also be that holidaying with young families lends itself to familiar food and healthy exercise.” In addition, golf breaks were popular, although 72 percent of requests came from women. It seems that either more ladies are taking up the game, or those that like to sightsee while their other halves play golf are determined that they will at least choose where they end up,” added Clark.
