National Parks and Honey Pots

Extracts from this document...


Robin Hood's Bay - an example of a honeypot Robin Hood's Bay is located on the east coast of England in the North facing North Sea near the National Park, North York Moors in between two big towns, and Whitby to the North and Scarborough to the South. Robin Hood's Bay is one of the honeypots in England. A honeypot is a popular place where tourists go in large numbers. The attractions of the coast and the village makes Robin Hood's Bay a honeypot. These include the beautiful, attractive scenery. It's coast line is one of the few in England that is suitable for fossil hunting. A sandy beach also makes it popular, especially families with small children. Swimming, fishing, looking for crabs and other sea life could be good activities for visitors. Many people go to Robin Hood's Bay for taking photos and painting Robin Hood's Bay's beautiful scenery. Robin Hood's Bay attracts many people who are interested in history as well because it has a rich historic background and it is one of the very few fishing villages in England that still remains today. ...read more.


Locals would find life much more inconvenient because of that since they cannot buy what they need nearby - no-one would want to do an hour drive for a box of washing powder! Visitors who go to Robin Hoods Bay by car would also need somewhere to park their cars, it is very likely that they would park in a resident's parking space if the car park is full. This must have annoyed the residence a lot but building a car-park would destroy the scenery which makes it a real problem. The place would also be crowded with visitors especially in the middle of the summer or weekends. Trees, plants could also be damaged by careless visitors. Facilities such as lavatories, pay phones, picnic sites, holiday cottages, inns, hotels, car parks, caravan parks, tourist information, museums, education centres had been provided for visitors for their conveniences them and help them to enjoy their visits. I have positive opinions towards the sea defences that had been built in Robin Hood's bay , the look of the coast had not been spoilt greatly by these. ...read more.


But as time goes, the demand for fish grew and people started sailing bigger boats to land bigger cantches; without a proper harbour and with a rocky bay, Robin Hood's bay could no longer shelter the boats. And the bigger fleets started to be based at Whitby and Scarborough. In the mid 1800s, Robin Hood's Bay had came to rely on tourists, they had to cater for the tourist's needs. In 1885, the railway came into Robin Hood's Bay an since then more tea shops, museums, holiday cottages had been built. On the other side, the number of permanent residents and facilities like butchers and bakers had went down. Today, Robin Hood's Bay is protected by the North York Moors National Park Authority. Strict rules are applied on the buildings to ensure new buildings do not look out of place in order to keep the character of Robin Hood's Bay. Physical features of Robin Hood's Bay had also changed during the causes of the years. the coast lines kept cutting back by the Sea, so more and more sea defences like conquer walls, blocks of granites had been put into place. ...read more.
