The source adds the following information: "Please note that the Great Britain Tourism Survey is designed as a national and regional survey and is therefore only robust at this level. To improve reliability three year averages have been used in the tables. However, caution should still be used as sample sizes can be low. By way of context, the volume of all overnight trips to England made by GB residents decreased by -3.2% in 2018 compared to 2017."
