Leicestershire tourism value increases

Leisure and tourism is Leicestershire's second-largest growing industry and one that, in times of economic difficulty, can play a critical role in helping us to reinvigorate our local economy. As a former hotelier, I am particularly pleased to see the work being undertaken to promote our destination is bearing fruit in both terms of additional visitors to the city and county along with an increase in the average spend.
