Supplementary notes

¹Data for 2021 was estimated by VisitBritain. This figure is higher than the International Passenger Survey (IPS) data published by the Office for National Statistics on June 15, 2022 (5.6 billion British pounds). This is because the estimate is based on the total inbound tourism market, while the IPS data did not include figures for Dover until Q3 2022 and data for the Eurotunnel for 2021.

²2022 data has been forecast by Visit Britain as of February 16, 2022, based on the IPS data and a central scenario. Please find here additional information related to the methodology.

Estimates based on the International Passenger Survey (IPS). Interviews are conducted with passengers arriving and departing from the country and include visits for all purposes, including for vacation, business, study, visiting friends and family, and other leisure purposes. The full year (non-forecast results) are as reported in the Travel Trends reports.
