Visitlondon.com predicts that the capital will welcome nearly 32 million international and UK tourists to the city in 2015. That's 2.7 million more than the 29.1 million visitors in 2013.

“We are delighted for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the arrival of the new Princess, the news of which will make it an extra special Bank holiday across London.

“Whilst it’s impossible to quantify the effect the birth of a new royal baby will have on the number of tourists visiting London, it’s clear that London’s tourism is going from strength the strength, and its royal connections and attractions are key drivers that attract people from the UK and abroad to the capital.”
