GB Day Visits Survey: Latest results

There is a temporary gap in the reporting of GBDVS due to Covid-19 related travel restrictions and a planned methodological update, meaning 2020 will be an incomplete year.  We are currently in the process of collecting data and reviewing the results, which will be released later in 2021.

The Great Britain Day Visits Survey (GBDVS) measures the volume, value and trip characteristics of tourism day visits in Britain. The survey was launched in 2011 and uses an online methodology, with weekly interviews and an annual sample of c. 35,000 adults, to provide a detailed understanding of this key market.

Each month we publish a monthly summary of latest findings for the Great Britain Day Visits Survey, showing volume and value results for the year to date and the most recent three-month period for both tourism day visits and all leisure visits lasting three hours or more.
