Why visit Britain? I could think of a hundred and one reasons to do so. You have fish and chips, the River Thames, the London Museum, and more. According to Lost Weekend, however, the biggest attraction drawing people from all over the world to the UK these days is none other than the wizard boy, Harry Potter. Of course, we all know that he is a fictional character. That does not change the fact, however, that Harry Potter fans want to visit his country of origin.

Visit Britain conducted a poll among people from other countries to find out what the top reasons are for visiting Britain. Would you believe, number 3 was this:

Harry Potter
The boy wizard is attracting people of every nationality, in record numbers, to sights all over the country. Weren’t we looking for a new statue in Trafalgar Square a while back? Who’s a better-known war hero than Potter?

Other items (or people) that made the list are Clarks (the shoes), Full English (what better way to start the day), the seaside (I don’t know why!), and Jamie Oliver (yummy!). Interestingly, none of the attractions I mentioned above made the list. Apparently, visitors to our shores have a different perspective as to what makes the UK interesting. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose.
