BBC News told how internal UK tourism has increased significantly owing to the impact of Covid-19 on foreign travel from the country.
With popular holiday destinations in Europe affected by a growing number of travel restrictions, many people in the UK have decided to stay closer to home for their summer break.
It’s providing welcome support to tourism which, like so much of the economy, shut down throughout the spring. It’s also helping to rebalance the loss of foreign visitors.
