Monarchy brings £500m from foreign visitors

The Monarchy brings in £500m a year from foreign
visitors, according to VisitBritain research.

The UK’s culture and heritage generated
£4.6bn in total spend by foreign visitors and supported 100,000 jobs in 2009,
however, venues associated with the Monarchy generated £500m of that
spend.

VisitBritain’s chief executive, Sandie Dawe, says: “This
fascinating research shows Britain’s monarchic heritage draws foreign
tourists to just about every corner of the country from Scotland to Cornwall. Her Majesty the Queen celebrates her
Diamond Jubilee in 2012, a feat last accomplished back in 1897 by Queen
Victoria”.
