Interrogate yearly data from the Great Britain Tourism Survey (GBTS) and the Great Britain Day Visits Survey with our easy-to-use online tools.

Online Data Browser: Great Britain domestic overnight trips (GBTS)

Our GBTS Online Data Browser is simple to use. It allows you to analyse data for each of the full calendar years of the current survey, going back to 2006 You can choose the measure you're interested in (trips, nights or spend), as well as the geographic level (GB, England, or the English regions).

Important note: Between 2006 and 2010, the UK tourism survey collected data from UK residents about trips within the UK. From 2011 onwards, this changed to consider trips taken by GB residents within Great Britain, i.e. excluding trips taken by Northern Irish residents and trips to Northern Ireland.

This browser contains data about trips taken by residents of Great Britain only. This means that results are consistent over time. However, it also means that the results shown for England and the regions are slightly different than those presented elsewhere on our website for the years 2006 to 2010, which consider trips taken by all UK residents.

Online Data Browser: Great Britain day visits

You can also analyse results from the GB Day Visits Survey using the similar GBDVS online browser

This is also simple to use, and includes a link to instructions for use on its front page.

It allows you to analyse data for the volume and value of:

  • All tourism day trips (non-regular activities, outside the place of residence).
  • All 3+ hour leisure trips (All tourism day trips and also trips which lasted at least three hours, but did not fulfil the criteria to be classified as tourism trips, because they were either activities undertaken regularly by the respondent, or because they happened in the respondent's place of residence).
