Tourism Minister Tracey Crouch said: 

"The UK is a world-class tourism destination with countless things to see and do, so it is no surprise that so many of us are planning to holiday at home this Easter.

“Staycations are integral to our thriving tourism industry, providing a significant boost to cities, towns, villages, and communities across the country."

VisitEngland Director Patricia Yates said:

“It is great to see so many Brits are planning holidays at home this Easter. The Easter break is a fantastic opportunity to get out and explore the outstanding accommodation, events and attractions right here on our doorstep whether enjoying a holiday at the seaside, countryside or on a city break.” 
 
This year’s VisitEngland Easter Trip Tracker survey also found that 7.6 million Brits (15%) are undecided about whether to take an overnight trip during Easter, with a third of those (35%) waiting to see what the weather is like. For some (29%), financial reasons are behind their delayed decision; 22% of people are just unsure about where they would like to go; 25% are waiting to see if there are any special deals or offers to take advantage of and 20% prefer to book last minute.
