A new survey by VisitBritain has identified that there is a trend amongst tourists of certain nationalities to visit different UK cities.

The results show that in terms of number of overnight stays by foreign visitors:

– more Americans go to Bath than any other nationality

– the French have developed a taste for Bristol and Plymouth

– the French and Irish are level pegging in Cardiff and Swansea

– the French and the Americans are joint first place in Cambridge

– Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle attract more visitors from Ireland than anywhere else

– Americans love Stratford-Upon-Avon

– visitors from the US are also the biggest market for the city of York, but Australians are a close second.
