Tourism trends by market
The International Passenger Survey (IPS) was suspended on 16 March 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The ONS have made every effort to produce high-quality estimates for the periods when IPS data is not being collected but have not been able to produce a full set of results therefore no data from 2020 is available on the interactive chart below. We have provided more detailed 2020 data on our latest monthly data page and 2020 inbound page. Data from 2021 is available on the 2021 quarterly page.
