Regional tourism information for the UK

 There are no regional tourist boards in Britain as such, largely because Britain is not divided into administrative regions.
  Nonethesess, provides overall regional tourist guides for the unofficial or official regions of the UK, as shown on the map.  Each guide provides a general regional overview, and carefully chosen lists of the most important tourist attractions in the area, in terms of heritage tourism, cultural tourism, and rural tourism - i.e. the main castles and stately homes, historic sites,  tourist cities, coastal attractions and areas of natural beauty.

 For national or trans-regional thematic guides (such as cathedrals, heritage railways, etc), use the drop-down menu under "Attractions by theme" at the top of this page.  

  Tourism in Britain is officially promoted by area or county tourist structures known as "DMO's", which among other things  run local tourist information offices. These are locally managed, and their activities and the services they provide vary considerably from place to place.
