Brexit beneficiaries, due to the drop in the value of sterling against other currencies, have been UK hotels and attractions, especially in London which is now reportedly seen as a bargain destination.

Also contributing has been the reticence of travellers to travel abroad with their devalued pounds, and the terror attacks, persuading many Brits to take a “staycation”.

According to the Tourism Alliance foreign visitors to London were 18% up, and British tourists 11% up on July last year. Online accommodation firm Airbnb saw a 24% uplift in London visits in the month after the referendum.
