Government funding for tourism, which is dispersed through VisitBritain and VisitEngland, is not allocated regionally but instead focuses on promoting the country as a whole and thematically. It is not possible to ascertain the precise figures for funding given to the different regions across England.

Other streams of non-central Government funding, including funding from local authorities and businesses, also supports tourism at a local level.
