Great Britain Tourism Survey
 
 
 

The Great Britain Tourism Survey (GBTS) is a national consumer survey measuring the volume and value of tourism trips taken by residents of Great Britain. The Great Britain Tourism Survey was previously known as the United Kingdom Tourism Survey, however, from January 2011 onwards, data about trips taken by Northern Ireland residents is being collected separately by NISRA (Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency) and will no longer be reported as part of a UK-wide survey.

The methodology of the GTBS covers trips away from home lasting one night or more taken by UK residents for the purpose of holidays, visits to friends and relatives, business and conferences or any other purpose. Key measures included in the UKTS include volume - for trips taken and nights stayed away - and value (expenditure on trips).

The UKTS has been running since 1989, though the methodology has changed a number of times since then. The current survey methodology started in May 2005, and comparisons with results from earlier years are difficult to make and should be treated with caution.
