    The temperature may be dropping as we move towards winter, but it seems that tourists are more interested in the drop in the value of the pound since this year's Brexit referendum vote.

    Sterling's significant fall against the dollar has made visiting and shopping in the UK cheaper, and so, more enticing for millions!

    New figures announced by Visit Britain, have revealed that international visitors to Britain spent an extra US$978 million (£800m) this year, taking the total to US$27,1 billion (£22.1bn), compared to 2014/15.
