Britain’s Attractions in 2009

Mar 9th, 2010 | By

The figures for what we visited last year have been released by ALVA, the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.

But not every attraction is a member and not every member provides figures so there could be more popular places around.
Last year more of us visited their attractions than ever before. The figures were up by nearly 11% over 2009 which may not be that surprising given that 2009 was a year when more of us holidayed at home.
Rather obviously, those that didn’t make an entry charge filled the top 5 positions with the British Museum being the leading attraction in the country with over 5.5 million visits.
