The survey is part of the Norfolk County Council EXPERIENCE project and is about summer  tourism. It will be carried out every six months over the next 2-3 years, focussing on winter and summer tourism alternately, you may have seen the previous one issued in April about winter tourism.

To take part please click on this link:

More information:

  • The results will be used to tailor the activities of the project and to better understand the benefits and disadvantages of tourism for local people.
  • Anyone who is over 18 and a resident in Norfolk can take part.
  • There’s a prize draw for £40 of Jarrold vouchers for participants (excluding employees of Norfolk County Council and their families, and anyone involved in the prize draw).
  • The survey closes at midnight on 15th October 2021.
