The Pink Book - Legislation for Tourism Accommodation

VisitEngland is making some improvements to how we provide legislation guidance for businesses.

The Accommodation Know-How website closes on 30th June 2014 and is being replaced by the Pink Book Online, the complete guide to legislation relevant to accommodation providers in England, which is due to launch in late summer 2014. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this short transition period.

The Pink Book is also available as a printed copy and a fully updated edition will be published late summer 2014. A free copy will be made available to VisitEngland Quality Assessment Scheme participants.

If you wish to purchase the current version of the Pink Book at a reduced rate of £4.99 (previously £9.99) plus £1.50 postage, email
