VisitBritain draws music map of UK

VisitBritain is using the country's musical talent as a promotional tool.

The six-month England Rocks drive will urge tourists to visit places with links to iconic musicians.

Central to the campaign is a map that pinpoints the birthplaces and ‘favourite hang-outs’ of legendary rock stars, as well as the locations that inspired their music.

Included on the map is Ely Cathedral, pictured on the cover of Pink Floyd’s 1994 album The Division Bell – it had 90,230 visitors in 2005. Hatfield House, where Adam and the Ants filmed their Stand and Deliver video (with 100,000 visits in 2005) is also included.
