British tourists 'flock to Yorkshire Hotels'
More people have been discovering what there is to see on British turf after it was revealed that there has been an increase in the number of people staying in Yorkshire Hotels.
Hull City Council's John Robinson said that places such as Hull, in East Yorkshire, have seen a "trend for visitors wanting to come to our city".
Mr Robinson was commenting after the local authority revealed last week that Hull History Centre has already reached its 2012 target of attracting 30,000 visitors after opening in January 2010, indicating an increase in the number of people taking holidays in the area.
Hotels in Yorkshire are also likely to have seen a surge in guests after iknow-yorkshire.co.uk announced that searches for accommodation and things to do in Hull had risen by 109.9 per cent compared with last year.
It added that attractions such as the city's Deep Aquarium are likely to have helped pull in the numbers, as well as other sites including museums, galleries and restaurants.
