The Department for Culture, Media and Sport publishes visitor figures for its sponsored museums and galleries in England on the first working day of each month:

http://www.culture.gov.uk/what_we_do/museums_and_galleries/3375.aspx

The figures are published one month in arrears to allow time for the museums and galleries to collect the data. Visitor figures for September will therefore be published on 1 November.
