Evaluation of Canterbury 'Shopping Streets' Tour.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Evaluation I think that my coursework has proved that Canterbury is a High Order shopping centre as it has a huge variety of shops. Another thing I have found is that St. Peter's street has a number of shops selling high-order goods and this I believe is why it has such a large Sphere of Influence. I think that my project has been done well, although I would change some things if I could. Limitations of the data I have collected: * For this project I feel that I have collected enough data to give me a sufficient number of results to study and analyse to prove my Hypothesis. * I think that not enough people were interviewed for the questionnaire, because only 181 people were interviewed in St. ...read more.

By doing this I could compare both sets of results with each other and see how accurate they were or if there were any alterations I needed to make. By Alex Streeter ...read more.
