Our resources for students

You will find a wealth of information about us, the national tourism organisation responsible for marketing Britain overseas and developing England's tourism product, and what we do in the About us section.

Our performance and annual reviews page is a good place to find information about our yearly results, marketing campaigns and approach for the future. Due to our own limited resources we are unable to assist with individual coursework queries. However we have gathered a number of resources here to assist you further in your research.
