Event description
A panel discussion exploring the pros and cons of tourism and tourists in Oxford.

About this Event

Oxford’s many attractions and a vibrant programme of events attract over 8 million visitors a year. They contribute an estimated £873 million to the local economy and provide about 12% of local jobs. But less than 40% of visitors are satisfied with their experience: Oxford is among the lowest-rated of destinations that tourists would consider returning to for a second visit.

Meanwhile, city residents complain of the rising flood of tourists and summer school students, crowded pavements, chaotic parking and coaches choking St Giles. In response to these complaints – including from the Civic Society - the City Council is starting to take action but a vision of what tourism should look like is still lacking.

Following on from the highly popular OCS@50 debates this panel discussion will include presentations from local experts (to be announced) and gives residents a say on what needs to be done to make tourism work better for everyone.
