English Tourism Week

English Tourism Week is an annual celebration of the tourism industry, a week dedicated to showcasing England’s tourism offer. The English tourism sector touches everyone; visitors, residents and employees - so let’s celebrate it!  

With Devon and Cornwall on the top of everyone's travel agenda this year, we are especially grateful for the local attractions and visitor experiences in our local areas. During the week-long event from 25-31 May, we’re showcasing the importance of tourism by shining the spotlight on a couple of local businesses we work closely with that play an important role in attracting visitors to the local area as well as supporting jobs and attracting investment. 

As part of our #EnglishTourismWeek21 campaign, we got in touch with some of the local attractions to find out more about what english tourism week means to them. Keep scrolling to find out more…


“We are so looking forward to welcoming visitors this summer and seeing them enjoy the stunning 65 acres of gardens at Rosemoor”


“For the AA, English tourism is about connecting people with the places and experiences that matter – exploring somewhere new or a return trip and the memories that follow.” - Simon Numphud, Managing Director of the AA

We also spoke to Director, Matthew Brend, on his thoughts about this upcoming summer season. 

“English Tourism Week is a chance for us at Brend Hotels to showcase the wonderful hospitality & leisure businesses not just in Devon & Cornwall, but across the whole breadth of the Country. With staycations on the rise, it’s important to instill confidence in our product, to show that you do not need to go abroad to experience quality & luxury, which England has in abundance.” - Matthew Brend, Brend Hotel Director
