A New Level of Ambition

Tourism 2018- 2025 – A New Level of Ambition

“We live in the cultural destination of choice offering world class visitor experiences” 
Tourism currently attracts almost 283,000 overnight visitors to Derry City & Strabane District and contributes to over £50m in the local economy. This in turn supports over 4,685 tourism jobs which makes up 8.7% of total jobs in the City and District.

Derry City & Strabane Tourism 2018-2025 sets out priorities and activities to help us double visitor spend to £100million and create 1000 additional jobs in the sector by 2025. The development of the strategy was an action identified in the Strategic Growth Plan which highlighted tourism as a key sector for economic growth and job creation and was developed following extensive consultation with tourism partners and stakeholders.

A strategic tourism partnership group made up of stakeholders from the private and public sector has been established to oversee the implementation of strategy.
