Travelling to London in 2017?

Has the UK leaving the EU made you question whether to visit or not?

I'm just curious to see how many people are taking Brexit as a reason to not visit the UK, it's been a hot topic in Europe as of lately and understandably some tourists may be worried. Alternatively, some tourists may be interested in British politics and are considering !

I wonder why people wouldn't visit the UK after Brexit - for most people it's made a trip there cheaper!
For anyone who is worried, I don't think you need to be. It's not going to be particularly different to tourists. Reply to this

Here's a previous post on the topic that folks may find of interest with some diverse opinions: Brexit.

For now, I agree with Kris and Kate -- it seems like the decreased cost of traveling there is more of an incentive for tourists to visit. I had heard many anecdotes prior to Brexit detailing how being part of the EU made working or traveling across country borders much easier, so wonder if that will be affected down the line for those who are living abroad or working in nearby countries.

Being about 20% cheaper than before Brexit will certainly help although London itself is expensive still. If there was a time to visit it'd be now, before the whole process of actually leaving begins, as no one knows what happens then Reply to this
