This book offers a multidisciplinary, holistic appraisal of the implications of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU) for tourism and related mobilities. It attempts to look beyond the short- to medium-term consequences of these processes for both the UK and the EU. It is divided into four major sections: Context, Tourism Impacts, Implications, and Global Britain? The volume employs case studies to highlight Brexit’s ripple effects on tourism, mobilities and immobilities. It will be of interest to researchers, students and policymakers in tourism, European studies, political geography, regional development, international relations and politics.


Tourism is associated with breaking down barriers. Brexit has the effect of raising barriers. Bring the two together and there is an inevitable clash. This book does a great job in exploring the background and nature of this clash for tourism in the UK and beyond. Its systematic and multidisciplinary exploration of the context, impacts and implications of Brexit will make it required reading for a generation of tourism scholars.

The safe option would have been to write this book once political events had settled. Hall’s decision to offer an assessment now is very welcome. His analysis of this highly topical issue is thoughtful, at times controversial, and very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

This book will make a valuable contribution to the current discussion on the impact of Brexit on the British tourism industry. Its theoretical and factual background provides an appropriate rationale for the timely publication of this book as it gives the reader a thorough understanding of this contentious issue.
