Tourists are being put off visiting Greenwich because of concern over Brexit, a top councillor has warned.
The split with the EU appears to be hampering the borough’s £1bn industry with less European visitors exploring the royal borough.
Statistics from last year show that the Royal Museums in Greenwich have seen a two per cent decrease in visitor numbers.
At a council meeting on April 23, Cabinet Member for Leisure- Miranda Williams- said that Brexit had caused a problem with attracting visitors to south east London.
She said: “Brexit has had a really bad knock-on effect on our visitor numbers.
There is no two ways about it. There is great concern in the sector about the utter uncertainty that it is creating amongst our international travellers and they are being put off.”
Attractions in Greenwich include the Royal Naval College, Greenwich Park and the O2 Arena.
