Half of people are 'city break culture crammers'
1 Jul 2014

Nearly half of people culture-cram when they head away for a city break, doing more cultural activities on such trips than when they're at home.

According to NewcastleGateshead research, the average traveller had 34 per cent of their yearly cultural intake during the last weekend break they took.

Meanwhile, 41 per cent of people aged 18 to 24 said they prioritise culture when they head to a city for the first time. A slightly higher 45 per cent of people aged 25 to 34 felt the same way, with one in three over 55s in this position.

Some 54 per cent of Londoners claimed they were culture crammers, making them the most likely to say they take in culture in this way.

Two in three people questioned said that they can tell a city is great when they want to go back to it, with 40 per cent saying they know a city is great if they think they could live in it.ADNFCR-408-ID-801732429-ADNFCR
