The chief executive of Visit England who spearheaded the survey said that it the statistics reveals that more locals are enjoying the wide range of quality destinations and tourism services in their own country.

Visit England also shows that 5.1 million Brits choose "staycation" rather than going abroad during the summer. It was noticed particularly during the bank holiday weekend in August.

Top pay-to-visit destinations in 2016 include the Tower of London, Westmenster Abbey, Royal, Botanical Gardens and St. Paul's Cathedral. Free-to-visit destinations include The British Museum, National Galley, National History Museum and Tate Modern.

Outside London, tourist would travel to Brighton Pier, Chester Zoo, Windermere, North Yorkshire and Stonehenge. A spokesperson from Visit England recommended the following events as the most exciting time to visit the country this year: July and August- World Athletics Championships; June- ICC Champions Trophy; 25th Anniversary of the Premier League (TBA); ICC Women's Cricket World Final (TBA).

Tourism highlights for this year include New Hadrian Cavalry Exhibition; British Museum Experience transfers from London to Liverpool next month. It also includes the unveiling of the skeleton of a giant blue whale at the National History Museum. The remains of the blue whale will replace the casts of Diplodocus in Hintze Hall, which is under exhibition for 35 years.
