Adults who visit places of historic interest enjoy higher personal wellbeing than those who do not, a survey has found. The survey also showed 54% of adults in NI visited a place of historic interest within the last 12 months. The report, published by Department for Communities and NI Statistics and Research Agency, presents the findings from the 2017/18 Continuous Household Survey in relation to the experience of heritage by adults in Northern Ireland and their associated well-being. The survey found that the most popular types of sites visited were a city or town with historic character (33%); a historic park or garden (28%); a monument such as a castle, fort or ruin (24%); and a historic building open to the public (21%).
