Visitor Economy


The visitor economy sector covers those activities which are directly associated with tourism, including hotels and restaurants, museums and cultural attractions. As well as activities relating to sports and the wider cultural sector which attract and service domestic and international visitors for business and leisure.

The D2N2 economy has some key assets notably quality of our environment, including the iconic landscapes of the Peak District and Sherwood Forest. We also have a variety of stately homes, historical buildings including the Derwent Valley Mills Unesco World Heritage Site, cultural attractions, sporting venues including Derby’s Multi Use Sports Arena and Nottingham’s Trent Bridge and our waterways.
