London could introduce a tourist tax to fund TFL – hundreds of millions of pounds

The UK is an outlier in Europe when it comes to tourist taxes, as many European countries have chosen to implement one.

Taxes are normally implemented on a regional basis, with areas in Spain such as Barcelona and the Balearics operating their own tax systems.

In 2007, a tourism levy was proposed to the UK Government but the recommendations were rejected.

A number of other British destinations have considered introducing a tax including Bath,Cornwall and Liverpool.
