City is capital for stay-at- home breaks

Have your say

CITY inhabitants are the most likely in the UK to go on a “staycation”, a new survey has revealed.

A poll of 1000 people revealed that 85 per cent of Edinburgh residents now take an annual break in the UK.

The figures showed that people in Glasgow were the second-most likely to take a British holiday, with Birmingham in third place.

Nick Rudge, managing director at holiday home firm cottages4you, which released the findings, said: “This is a great boost for domestic tourism with many families now taking an annual British break, whether it’s their main summer holiday, or in addition to an overseas trip.”
