BBPA comments on tourism action plan and funding announcement


Commenting on today’s announcement of tourism funding and tourism action plan, Brigid Simmonds BBPA Chief Executive, said:

“Going to the pub is third on the list of things to do for overseas visitors to Britain and seven out of ten visit a pub whilst they are here.

“We will be working hard to ensure pubs can make the most of these much-needed initiatives to better promote our beautiful countryside and coastline. New coastal communities teams in seaside towns will be helpful; around 15,000 pubs are in coastal areas.

“Local pubs can look forward to working with the recipients of the Discover England Fund and I very much welcome the Prime Minister's support for tourism.”
