Many organisations conduct research and provide market intelligence about subjects related to tourism. In this section, you can find descriptions of what’s available and links to the various surveys and information sources.
There may be other resources that we’ve overlooked, so if you’re aware of any useful websites that you think we should include, please contact us at [email protected].
Visit the Office for National Statistics page for links to outputs from the ONS's Tourism Intelligence Unit (TIU), including an experimental UK Tourism Satellite Account, measurement of the regional value of tourism, measurement of the supply side of tourism, and guidance notes on measuring tourism locally. This section also provides links to more general information such as population and labour market statistics.
VisitBritain publishes a wealth of market intelligence, primarily about inbound travel to the UK, but also more general UK tourism trends. Visit the VisitBritain page for links to some of their key outputs.
We have put together a list of useful surveys and outputs from major surveys with relevance for travel and tourism, including Taking Part (participation in culture, leisure and sport), Active People (participation in sport and active recreation), the National Travel Survey (personal transport usage), the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment and Heritage Counts.
