Luxury tourism continues to thrive
The appetite for staying in luxury hotels in East Anglia and elsewhere in the UK has not been hampered by the current economic climate, research has shown.
Luxury Travel: Understanding the Luxury Consumer is a new report from VisitBritain, identifying that people are still keen to have fairytale experiences on their holidays.
It revealed three types of traveller, the gold who are rich and like to showcase their wealth, platinum who are wealthy but less overt and black who are understated with a real penchant for exclusivity.
Patricia Yates, director of strategy and communications at VisitBritain, said: "Britain is already regarded by many of the international jet-set as the original home of luxury, thanks to our centuries-old aristocratic traditions and history of service."
In recent weeks, the organisation revealed that the nation's best-loved cup of tea is Early Grey with plenty of milk.
