Pubs and restaurants most welcome for UK holidaymakers

Foreign holidaymakers to Great Britain feel the most welcome in restaurants and pubs, according to a new study from tourist body The study, which questioned 9,000 overseas travellers visiting the country for a holiday, found that 21 per cent of all visitors felt ‘most welcome’ in restaurants, while 13 per cent stated they felt pubs provided the warmest reception.

The study, which discovered that a huge 80 per cent of foreign travellers felt welcome in the UK, is a sterling recommendation of the UK pub and restaurant business. Speaking about the survey results, Patricia Yates, director of strategy and communications at VisitBritain, said:

“We want to make sure that we continue to be seen as a welcoming destination for our visitors so that they continue to want to come back and recommend us to their friends and family.

“Enhancing the world’s perceptions of a British welcome will help us attract more visitors in the years ahead.”

Here at Soundnet background music blog, we’ve previously praised the warm atmosphere in many of the UK’s pubs and restaurants. In fact, a welcoming ambiance can go far in attracting the right sort of clientele, from tourists to families, and a background music system can play an important role in this.

A background music system for a bar, pub or restaurant gives owners the ability to provide exactly the right genre of music for their establishment, whatever the style of the venue. You can discover more about why the right background music system is an important element in creating the right ambiance here.
