For the last couple of years, the number of visitors from the UK has been falling, whilst the number of international visitors has been growing. The preliminary numbers for 2009 are out, and the trend has been reversed. This year, the UK visitors grew by 4% and the total number tipped over 30,000 for the first time. I’ve become so used to seeing the queues to get in every year, that I’d assumed that this year’s queues were normal – obviously not!
