Manchester introduces tourist tax for all visitors – how much you’ll have to pay
Manchester’s City Visitor Charge comes into force from April 1, with a £1 charge for all city centre stays in hotels and holiday apartments in a scheme that should raise £3million a year.
Tourists to Manchester will have to pay to stay from later this week in a UK first.
From April 1 everyone who stays in a city centre hotel or holiday apartment will have to fork out £1 per night, per room.
Officially called the ‘City Visitor Charge’, it is hoped the tax won’t stop people from heading to Manchester and will raise £3million a year.
The city is the first in the UK to introduce a tourist tax, following in the footsteps of European hot spots such as Madrid and Rome.
The charge has been introduced ahead of a significant expansion of the hotel and holiday let sector in the city.
