Official tourism figures show the number of overseas visitors to the East of England grew last year.
VisitBritain says more than 1.8 million international tourists came to the region in 2017. That's a rise of about 3% compared to the previous year.
However it wasn't such good news for the East Midlands, which includes Northamptonshire. The number of overseas visitors there fell by 5% to under a million.
Nationally in the first nine months of 2017 there were a record 12.7 million visits to English regions outside London, up 4% compared to the same period in 2016.
Boosting inbound tourism throughout Britain is at the heart of our work, so it is very encouraging to see the growth across our nations and regions. Tourism is one of our most valuable export industries and we are forecasting that growth will continue in 2018, with 41.7 million overseas visits to the UK and visitors spending almost £27 billion.
