The Leisure Outlook - UK - April 2017

“Overall almost all the leisure activities covered have seen increased visitation over the last 12 months which is good news for the industry. It is hard to predict what Brexit will mean in terms of consumer behaviour but it does appear that it is driving more cautious spending and not discouraging leisure activity participation.”
– Helen Fricker, Senior Leisure Analyst
