UK Inbound CEO Joss Croft spoke to Express.co.uk exclusively about the UK’s tourism and the Royal Family.
Joss stated: “The British Royal Familie are a key component of our heritage with links to cultural places across the country.
“The popularity of historical dramas like The Crown has shown that there’s a genuine interest in learning more about the Monarchy, and following their steps.”
“Pre-pandemic, the UK’s amazing history and culture were one reason international tourists came to our four countries.
We expect that this trend will continue into 2022, and we anticipate attractions such as Buckingham Palace and the Scottish Highlands, Caerphilly Castle, Wales, and Hillsborough Castle, Northern Ireland, to be high up on people’s must-see list.
The VisitBritain luxury tourist report states that “Perceptions about Britain are positive, with a view to being rich and committed to culture. Exclusion is a key value. Britain is renowned for its prestigious status as a luxury destination. Its most notable attributes are ‘historical, royal’ and spontaneous.
According to VisitBritain China is the top country for tourists to come to the Royal Family. According to their luxury report, “For China the main focus should be castles and royalty as well as culinary delights. Respondents from both the US and China associate Britain with royal, classic attributes.
However, that appeal is not universally translated in every market. Chinese luxury travelers would enjoy itineraries with royal palaces and other exceptional experiences.
They are more likely to choose historic homes or stately residences, which is something that other markets may not be able to do.
