The data shows the duration of international vacations and places visited by British tourists in 1950 and 1990.
In 1960, the majority of holidays were less than one week; just under one were one to two weeks. Holidays over 4 weeks were in the minority at percent. Almost quarters of holidays were taken in Europe and less than tenth in South America and Asia combined. They were the least visited destinations.
In 1990, the percentage of holidays less than one week remained steady with just a percent decrease. There was a percent fall in holidays of one to two weeks, yet holidays longer than this accounted for one as opposed to less than a in 1950. There was an inverse correlation between the increasing percentage of people who went abroad for over two weeks and the percentage who visited Europe. The percentage of visitors to Asia more than doubled and to South America more than tripled.
Overall, Europe remained the most visited destination even though visitors declined by five percent over the period shown.
