The luxury tourism market is an important sector for some of Britain’s key inbound visitor markets, and one that we would like to grow, but we do not currently have a lot of insight available on these visitors. We would like to better understand current and potential luxury tourists to the UK and what Britain could and should offer to the luxury travellers. Ultimately we need to understand how VisitBritain should reach this audience and how to market to them to drive additional tourist visits and spending.
