Introduction

GCSE Geography Coursework In this study I will investigate the impact of tourism on two honeypot sites in the North York Moors National Park. I will also investigate whether or not tourism in the area is sustainable. National Parks are areas of beautiful and relatively wild countryside. In 1949 ten national parks were set up by an act of parliament. They were chosen because of their beauty and popularity. There are currently 12 National Parks in England and Wales. Each National Park is managed by its own National Park authority, however they don't own it. The National Parks have lots of different owners, mainly farmers. Also they are owned by National Trust, Forestry Commission, Water Companies, Ministry of Defence and County Councils. ...read more.

On the other hand there are some disadvantages, such as; Traffic problems (congestion, speed, volume), path erosion, litter, pollution, vandalism, loss of privacy, tourists trespassing, dogs (not on lead, fouling) and parking problems.

Whether or not they were staying in a local Bed and Breakfast or hotel, I asked this to see if they were giving any money back to the local area. I also what do you dislike about the North York Moors? I asked this to see if the tourists were aware of the disadvantages of tourism. I collected the data on Friday 20th June between 10am and 2pm. Some of the data would have been different according to the day and time. If it was about 12 in the afternoon on a Saturday in summer, then I could expect a lot more tourists and cars. ...read more.
