Leisure – a definition CLAD's definition of leisure includes all aspects of out-of-home activity: arts & culture, museums & heritage, hotels & hospitality, bars & restaurants, sport & recreation, spa & wellness, health & fitness, attractions, theme parks & entertainment, greenspace, regeneration and retail. It's the biggest area of consumer expenditure in the developed world and the biggest driver of growth in the developing world.
