Capital leading world tourism

MORE international travellers will head to London this year than any other city in the world, according to a forecast released this morning.

The city has retaken its top spot from Bangkok, which was the most travelled-to last year, according to figures from Mastercard.

The capital is set for 18.7m visitors from abroad during the current year, 300,000 more than the Thai capital. People travelling to London are expected to spend £11.26bn in 2014.
