UK Daily Footfall Index

This page is updated daily on our beta website


High street footfall in the UK has been falling since the end of February.

Whilst footfall is a key metric in the management of town centres and other commercial areas, since COVID-19 the amount of people on and off the streets has become an indicator of national importance.

As the professional body for place management the Institute is heavily involved in understanding the impact of COVID-19 and supporting government and our practitioners, including those in The BID Foundation.

We are fortunate that our long-term collaboration with partners Springboard means that we have access to hourly footfall figures across the UK and a daily high street footfall index, tracking UK high street footfall and changes in footfall across four town types.
