People travel to see locations outside their immediate environment, relax, and experience different cultures. Travel markets include packaged tours, independent tours, domestic visitors, visiting friends and relatives, business, and conference.
External Factors (02:36)
Weather can deter potential visitors from U.K . destinations. Economic pressures like interest rates also decrease tourist spending.
