    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    The definition of a visitor attraction used for the purposes of this Visitor Attraction Monitor is:
    '…an attraction where the main purpose is sightseeing.  The attraction must be a permanent established excursion destination, a primary purpose of which is to allow access for entertainment, interest, or education; rather than being
    primarily a retail outlet or a venue for sporting, theatrical, or film performances. It must be open to the public, without prior booking, for published periods each year, and should be capable of attracting day visitors or tourists as well as
    local residents. In addition, the attraction must be a single business, under a single management, so that it is capable of answering the economic questions on revenue, employment, etc.'
