Oxford Economics / HLF Report: The Economic Impact of the UK Heritage Tourism Economy. #heritagefutures

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has requested that Oxford Economics update their 2010 report on the economic impact of the UK heritage tourism industry using the latest available data. This study quantified the scale of economic activity associated with heritage-based tourism in the UK.
A key objective is to develop an indication of the scale of the gross economic impact of heritage tourism in the UK in terms of visit numbers, visit spend, employment and GDP. Then, comparisons are made with other sectors of the UK economy.
Released July 2013.
