Britainís gardens bring in £7.8m revenue


New research released by the national tourism agency has revealed that £7.8bn is spent by tourists enjoying parks and gardens in the UK each year.

The study, conducted by VisitBritain, identified that of the 31 million visitors that come to Britain every year, around a third (11.1m) visit a park or garden.

More than 40 per cent of those under-35 are likely to visit a park or garden, compared to 33 per cent of visits coming from those aged over 35.

People are much more likely to visit gardens, unsurprisingly, during the summer months, with four million of the annual tally coming between the months of July and September.

Recent post-2012 Olympic Games research also shows that 75 per cent of respondents across the world said that the Games coverage made them want to venture out to visit other parts of the country.

In a separate question, 70 per cent of people said that following the Olympics, they agreed that Britain had a ílovely countrysideí.
