2 WELSH ATTRACTIONS

3 Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is situated in the south west of Wales on the coast. It is a national park that goes through Tenby and Saunders Foot. It gets south westerly winds meaning it gets windy, therefore making it one of the best places in Britain for surfers

6.2 Info: Blackpool became popular for tourists as it's very accessible. 1846, railway was built, peoples wages increases meaning they were able to go on holidays more. 1850's, people believed in healing waters in Blackpool. 1870's people were able to work 5 days a week, meaning holidays on weekend. 1894, Blackpool tower was built. Blackpool has decreased in tourists lately as short haul flights are so cheap. £300m was spent rejuvenating Blackpool in 2000. They built a super casino, however attracted the wrong type of tourists. Brilliance lighting at night in town. John's Square. Houndshill Shopping Centre and the beach also.
7 BUTLER'S MODEL
7.1 1. Exploration - Small number of tourists visit area
7.2 2. Involvement - Local people are starting to become involved with it and provide some services/facilities (e.g cafe/ picnic area)
7.3 3. Development - Changes for the better. The area becomes recognised as a tourist destination
7.4 4. Consolidation - The area is attracting many tourists but it's not growing as fast as it did before and levelling out
7.5 5. Stagnation - The facilities decline as they become old and run down. Tourists number declines
7.6 6. Rejuvenation - Money spent in the area so tourist numbers increase
7.7 6. Decline - If the resort is not rejuvenated then it will go into decline, people loose jobs and image suffers
8 IMPACTS OF TOURISM
8.1 Benefits
8.1.1 Tourists spend money in the local area (shops, restaurants, hotels). Creates jobs (hotel, chef, staff, maid). Community benefits from facilities. Multiplier effect - improved image, more people, more money, more facilities. More culture meaning more tolerence
8.2 Costs
8.2.1 Pollution by cars. Litter. Traffic/Congestion. Noise from drunken. Pickpocketing and crime. Loss of culture (McDonalds near Pyramids of Egypt). Money leaked back to other countries through imports.
