Introduction

Llandudno Fieldwork: Introduction The study area in question is the town of Llandudno located in the North East of Wales on the date of 15th July 2004. Llandudno is a growing tourist hotspot and is a popular destination for tourists from the north west of English, although long distance travellers alike enjoy the lush scenery and the vast verity of attractions this beautiful town has to offer. Map A: Map A shows the location of Llandudno, and as you can well see from the map it is highly accessible from many of the main cities across the U.K such as the M56 from Manchester and Liverpool link onto the A road, A55 that leads almost right into the centre of Llandudno. Also it is highly accessible from other methods of transport such as via train, as a train station leads right into the heart of Llandudno, and many tourists travelling from further a field may well choose this method of transport. The aim of this coursework is to find 'Does tourism benefit the economy, locals, and environment? And to find out 'if tourism is managed in a sustainable way which does not lead to a contrast of interests?' ...read more.

The results will show whether the traffic is worse near tourist attractions such as the promenade compared to the other areas of the town. We also compiled a pedestrian count survey sheet. This will show the areas of the town that are more popular with the general public and which areas aren't as busy as places such as the town centre or the Central Business District. It will also be able to confirm which buildings attract large numbers of people and it will also show at what times of the day the are most busy. This all shows how popular the town is and with the use of the pedestrian questionnaire we can see how much the town relies on tourism. The shopkeeper questionnaire will also show what percentages of the customers are tourists and at what time of the year the shop is most busy. This shows also shows how much the city relies on tourism, for instance, if the shop has a much higher percentage of the customers in the summer, this is most probably due to tourism and visitors to the town, although this isn't a fully conclusive theory, its highly possible that that is the reason. ...read more.

Conclusion

outside M&S, Upper Mostyn St., Augusta St., Gloddaeth St. at its junction with Maelgwyn Rd., Lloyd St. at its junction with Deganwy Ave., Trinity Ave. at its junction with St. David's Rd., Abbey Rd. at its junction with Clement Ave., Church Walks. By carrying out these surveys in different parts of the city at the same time, this ensures that it is as random as possible and as accurate to the overall result as possible. We recorded all data by using a series of spreadsheets, a clipboard, pencil / pen and ruler. Students were given more time over the summer holidays to record a missing or necessary data by revisiting Llandudno. The information collected on the day is very closely linked to key questions asked and I will also be essential towards answering the hypothesis. The data collected will help answer one question in particular, "how long did it take for you to record the data?" because obviously if we didn't record the data we wouldn't know how long it would take to record the data. Most of the data recording went almost to plan although there were minor problems in recording the data for different lengths of time and I will look forward to correcting this problem be asking other members of my group to get the required data. ...read more.
