Still Waters Posted March 26 #1 Share Posted March 26 (IP: Staff) · Manchester has become the first city in the UK to charge tourists for visiting. The tourist tax - termed the 'city visitor charge' - aims to raise millions of pounds, which will then be spent on 'improving the visitor experience'. The move follows in the footsteps of European cities such as Venice and Barcelona. The tax will apply from 1 April, with visitors staying in city centre hotels charged £1 per night, per room. It is hoped the scheme will rake in £3 million per year, which will go towards the new Manchester Accommodation Business Improvement District (ABID), which aims to 'support future growth of the visitor economy' over the next five years. https://www.ladbible.com/news/manchester-tourist-charge-uk-first-614169-20230326 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
