Berkhamsted Castle

English Tourism Week 2024

Berkhamsted Castle Trust is participating in English Tourism Week 2024.

Coordinated by VisitEngland and taking place from Friday 15 – Sunday 24 March, English Tourism Week is an annual celebration of the tourism industry, highlighting its importance to local economies and promoting the innovation, quality and range of products and services on offer to encourage more domestic breaks.

Berkhamsted Castle is sharing fascinating facts on Facebook and X to highlight its importance as a piece of England’s history and as a visitor attraction in beautiful Hertfordshire.

Tourism is one of England’s largest and most valuable industries, supporting hundreds of thousands of small-to-medium sized businesses, employing 2.6 million people and, in 2022, generating £66 billion for the economy in domestic visitor spending.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes has said:

“As the weather turns warmer and with Easter up ahead, now is the time to put tourism centre stage and showcase this wonderful industry which supports millions of jobs and communities across England.”

Berkhamsted Castle is open daily, and entrance is free. The site is only 35 minutes from London Euston, and close to many other tourist attractions around Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
