Tourism Industry

Hampshire has a vibrant visitor economy, with tourism contributing an estimated £2.72 billion to the Hampshire economy and supporting up to 65,000 full time equivalent jobs.

Hampshire possesses a wide variety of visitor attractions, leisure facilities and heritage sites and hosts regular events, shows and festivals, attracting millions of visitors each year on both day trips and longer breaks.

If you're interested in setting up a new tourism business in Hampshire, such as a B&B or visitor attraction, we have data and resources to help you.

We can provide images for tourism publications and websites, assist with advertising queries, and put you in touch with your local tourism officer.

We can also assist students with enquiries and have special guides for group travel and international students visiting Hampshire.

If you would like your business to be featured on the Visit Hampshire website, you need to contact the data steward for your local area. For example, if you manage a B&B in Portsmouth, contact the data steward for Portsmouth.

Please note we only display quality assured accommodation on our website. Inspected properties can be provided with a log on by their local data steward to access the extranet in order to update their availability.
