    This module will introduce students to a distinctive and important sector of the tourism industry with the objective of developing an understanding and appreciation of the fundamental role which heritage attractions, and the heritage environment, play in successful destination development and planning. The focus of the module is on the tourist-historic city, and makes full use of London as a unique urban heritage destination. The breadth of the subject means that the module has had to be selective in the areas covered but it provides a pathway to the understanding of other modules such as Cities and Consumption.
