Visitor Economy

< Back to Local

The local visitor economy is worth more than £1.37 billion a year to Lincolnshire alone, employing at least 19,000 people, making it one of the most important growth sectors for the region.  It embraces not only traditional tourism but also business visitors, culture and heritage, events and festivals, and education and is becoming a very established popular tourist city.

Greater Lincolnshire boasts amazing heritage assets including the castle, cathedral and Brayford Waterfront in Lincoln alone, the RAF, the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, more than 120 sites of special scientific interest and coastal resorts from North East Lincolnshire to the Wash.

In 2016, Lincolnshire attracted nearly 20 million visitors, with the county continuing to gain popularity from far and wide.
