-Juliana Delaney (CEO, Continuum Attractions)
“On behalf of our industry and Continuum Attractions I have been clear that we should remain inside the EU; leaving the European Union was a sad decision that has the potential to damage our business, Britain’s economy and Europe’s stability. Democracy has given us a decision and we accept and respect the majority vote.
“To quote Sir Richard Branson: ‘Now is not the time for further complaints and anger. Now is the time to come together as a nation and heal the wounds created by the divisive tone and aggressive rhetoric that has dominated this campaign. The UK and its amazing, resilient people have weathered many storms – with determination, resolve and sense of what is right. Those qualities will be needed over the testing months and years to come.’
“To put it in the words of the late Jo Cox, “’we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us. It’s time to build on that as the UK navigates the choppy waters ahead.’
“The reason why tourism is so successful in this country, is because our country has so much to offer. People come to Britain because of our extraordinary heritage, our beautiful landscapes, our great sporting events, our art, some of the finest museums in the world, and our music.
“All of these are why people come to visit Britain. It was the case last week, it is the case this week, and it will be the case next week.”
