Tourism Intelligence - March 2017

2 May 2017

Easter in 2017, fell three weeks later than in 2016 (14 to 17 April, whereas in 2016 the Easter weekend fell from the 25 to 28 March. School holidays in 2017 began on either April 1 or even as late as the 8 for York, North Yorkshire and some other areas.

As a result, March visitor numbers for 2017 were lower than we saw in March 2016, simply because there were no school or Bank Holidays and several attractions waited until April to launch their new events and exhibitions or even re-open.
