2020 vision

Key attractions that opened this year include the UK’s first Hard Rock Hotel near London’s Marble Arch and the War of the Worlds Immersive Experience, also in the capital. Further afield, Beamish open-air museum in County Durham opened the first exhibit in its 1950s town recreation in June. The £20 million, four-year project will include moving an entire cinema brick by brick from Sunderland.


UK tourism will see two key events boosting visitor numbers in 2020, with the early May bank holiday moving from a Monday to Friday 8 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) Day, plus the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower in September.


Wales will come under the spotlight when it celebrates its Year of Outdoors, encouraging visitors to explore its natural landscapes. Wales will also host the first Nitro World Games to be held outside the US. The two-day festival of extreme sports and stunts in Cardiff, featuring motocross, BMX, skateboarding and scooter tricks, takes place in May.


UKinbound names experiential tourism, such as food tours led by locals, as a growth sector. Film tourism, such as visiting Highclere Castle, location of hit TV series Downton Abbey, is another, with more than a third of visitors saying they want to go to such destinations.
