In April 2009, VisitEngland launched its £3 million integrated Enjoy Every Minute! campaign which set out to make Brits view their time differently and see spare time as an opportunity to take a trip in England. So whether that's a lunch hour or an afternoon, a day out or a weekend away, we can all use that time to make the most of what England has to offer.
This message was supported by around 600 offers representing great value for money such as free entry for children to attractions and three nights for the price of two hotel offers. These offers, supplied by industry, are available at www.enjoyengland.com
This campaign was built on insights gained from extensive research carried out by VisitEngland which highlights the challenges and opportunities for English tourism. While some 90% of the population are cutting back on their overall spend, the importance of holidays mean that these are more protected than many other areas, while 1 in 5 of those who took an overseas holiday last year have said that they would consider switching to the UK this year to save money.
