Domestic Tourism
Domestic tourism is tourism involving residents of one country traveling only within that country.[1] A playing holiday is a holiday (vacation) spent in the same country; this class may overlap with staycation (in British English), a vacation spent in the same region. This is different from inbound tourism. With the resurgence of the package holiday, research carried out by British travel agent Thomas Cook
Thomas Cook
has identified that domestic holidays are not always a cost-effective means of holidaying. According to their research,[2] a one-week family holiday to Devon
Devon
for four can cost in the region of £2,299, whereas an equivalent holiday to Majorca
Majorca
£2,036. In the PK, the growth of domestic holidays has had a major impact on its domestic tourist industry

Manufacturing
companies offer factory tours as public relations. Breweries and distilleries, together with manufacturers of clothes, pottery and glass, are amongst the most popular factory visits.

as spoken and written in the United Kingdom.[3] Variations exist in formal, written English in the United Kingdom. For example, the adjective wee is almost exclusively used in parts of Scotland

and Ireland, and occasionally Yorkshire, whereas little is predominant elsewhere. Nevertheless, there is a meaningful degree of uniformity in written English within the United Kingdom, and this could be described by the term British English. The forms of spoken English, however, vary considerably more than in most other areas of the world where English is spoken,[4] so a uniform concept of British English

Day-tripper
A day-tripper is a person who visits a tourist destination or visitor attraction from his/her home and returns home on the same day. Such an excursion does not involve a night away from home such as experienced on a holiday. The day trip or daycation is a popular form of recreation and leisure for families who care for young children or people who are too frail to travel easily or who own pets, or for whom the logistics or cost of a night away from home may be prohibitive. History[edit] In Medieval
Medieval
days a destination for such days out would be religious (to a nearby shrine) or commercial, for example to a seasonal fair. Later, in England, visits to stately homes by those who regarded themselves middle class became frequent and it was the tradition to reward the butler or housekeeper with a tip for providing access to their employers' home
