Introduction

IDENTIFICATION OF A QUESTION Theory The original settlement of Hunstanton is now called old Hunstanton. At one time old Hunstanton was called Hunstanton and the new development of main town was called new Hunstanton over time this changed to old Hunstanton and Hunstanton. A light house and the ruins of St. Edmund's Chapel, built in 1272 are now in old Hunstanton. Hunstanton was built as a Norfolk seaside resort and gained popularity as early as the 1860s. Hunstanton became a seaside resort was mostly because Henry Styleman Le Strange's decision to develop the area south of the old village as a sea bathing resort. He designed the new resort himself with a triangular green sloping down to the sea buildings were in the two side of the triangle and the other side was sea. The golden lion hotel was the first building in Hunstanton. In 1862 the great eastern counties railway started a Norfolk rail line from Kings Lynn to Hunstanton, this helped Hunstanton as a resort. Rail travel made the resort available to the general population. After Strange's death his son took over the project and made his fathers dream come true. Hunstanton now has a clean and safe beach and is ideal for family holidays. It has won sea - side awards for clean and tidy for many years. ...read more.

Conclusion

The semantic differential survey and the environmental quality survey is not always accurate because I may have different views to them than if someone else filled it out and some of the results will change depending on the day I go. The pedestrian flow count would also have changed depending on the day it is for instance there would have been more people passing us by if we went on weekends rather than in week days. The model of Hunstanton may not be as accurate as it should be because of the limited time I had when I went back to Hunstanton. If that's wrong in many ways the answer to the first question may be wrong as well. Summary Hunstanton is an attractive Victorian town with a friendly holiday atmosphere. Hunstanton does fit into the model of a typical seaside resort in some ways but not all for instance Hunstanton hasn't got many large hotels. I think Hunstanton is a popular seaside resort because there are many people visiting Hunstanton and when I asked the residents who lives in Hunstanton about what they thought about the amount of people coming to Hunstanton they thought it was at the right level or even more. I think the future of Hunstanton as far as tourism is concerned is going to be great because there are a lot of people coming to Hunstanton and they enjoy coming to Hunstanton. ...read more.
