Despite recent terror attacks, Britain can expect a huge influx of foreign visitors, especially from the US and China
Britain is becoming an ever more attractive place for overseas shoppers and holidaymakers – and a summer influx of visitors is set to take advantage of the weak pound and prepare to spend big, according to new figures.
Data collected by travel consultancy ForwardKeys shows that long-haul flight bookings to the UK from the start of this month to August are up 10% on the same period last year. Visitors from two countries in particular are driving the boom. Bookings from the US are up 19% for June to August year on year, while those from China are up 29%.
