Visit Dorset Business Support Hub Research

As part of the tourism industry sector, it is important that we analyse the latest research and reports to make sure that we remain competitive and are aware of the value that the visitor economy brings to Dorset.

Visit England and other tourism bodies including the National Coastal Tourism Academy based in Bournemouth, produce a range of interesting reports and industry relevant research that can help our industry improve and develop.

We commission annual Dorset tourism research to provide insights on the value of tourism in Dorset, these Dorset tourism statistics are segmented into areas and in some cases towns.

What does your Dorset look like? Adventures on our epic coastline? Visiting attractions with family? A walk through the beautiful countryside? Or perhaps a chilled out evening eating and drinking with friends? Discover a sample of your #VisitDorset images below and share your love for Dorset using the hashtag on Instagram.
