Host City

“Four out of five visitors state that ‘culture, art and heritage’ are their main reasons for coming to London. Indeed, cultural tourism generates £3.2 billion a year for the local economy and supports around 80,000 jobs through 17million visitors in the capital alone.”

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
