Tourism strategy

Brighton museum & Art Gallery

The City Council, in Partnership with the Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership produced a refresh of the Tourism Strategy in 2008 in response to the continuing challenges facing the sector.  The new strategy sets out a ten year vision to 2018 that will see the city being a destination where the needs of the visitor, the tourism industry, the community and the environment are in complete balance and consequently will make a significant contribution to improving the quality of life for local people.

The strategy provides a roadmap behind which businesses, communities, public sector, regional and national agencies can unite to positively shape the development of Brighton & Hove.

A detailed access audit of the city centre was carried out in 2005 in partnership with Tourism South East.  The audit aimed to maximise tourism industry investmnet and to identify oportunities to improve visitor accessibility.
