When it comes to getting away most Britons know what they like and want exactly that when they go away. Two million Brits are creatures of habit who prefer to return to the same resort and do the same thing year after year, and nearly two thirds will visit the same resort within five years of their last visit. Looks familiar: Nearly two thirds of Britons will visit the same resort within five years, reveals a new survey The usual, thanks: Two fifths will dine at the same restaurant and one in 10 will do the same activities Local away from home: One third of Brits will go back to the same pub when they return to a resort And a staggering third have been to the same resort more than three times and one in 20 have been back more than 10 times over the years. And when they get there, two fifths dine at the same restaurant each time and over an eighth even sit in the same spot. From beyond the grave: Richard III boosts Leicestershire tourism by 482m in just one year (not bad for a body in a car park) Two out of five stay in the same resort, one in 10 do the same activities, almost two fifths go to the same beach, and almost a third will go to the same bar or pub.
