Eden visitor numbers
The new 2017 STEAM (Scarborough Tourism Economic Activity Monitor) research figures have now been published and we are delighted that the value and volume of tourism continues to grow and help strengthen the economy of Eden.
The 2017 STEAM report shows that the Eden District benefited from an increase on the number of visitors, their spend and the number of FTE (full time equivalent jobs) supported by Tourism.
- Eden attracted 4.998 million tourism visits (visitor numbers up 4.7% on 2016)
- A massive £336.6 million (up 8.8% on 2016) being generated within the local economy through visitor and tourism business expenditure
- Tourism accounted for 4,472 full-time equivalent jobs in Eden (an increase of 4.4% on 2016)
