Whitby is in the north east of England and in a recent survey was found to be the best sea side resort in England. We went to Whitby in minibuses via the A174. We stayed in Stainsacre Hall overnight. While we were at Whitby we had to collect data on 5 hypotheses. My first hypothesis was that fish and chips prices were cheaper as you got further away from tourist areas. I think this because the demand for fish and chips near the sea is higher so the shops can increase the prices. My second hypothesis is that people travel from less than 50 miles and stay for one day. I think this because My third hypothesis is that tourist attractions have a high people flow. ...read more.

The fish and chip shop in the centre of Whitby is �0.40 cheaper than the fish and chips shop that is 456 metres away from the centre. The most expensive eat in price was for The Magpie, at �9.90. This shop was near the centre and was also next to some arcades, so there were a high number of people walking past. The reason for this price being so high may have been that the restaurant is so close to the centre of Whitby, as well as being near tourist attractions such as gift shops and arcades. ...read more.

My third hypothesis is that tourist attractions have a high people flow. To test this hypothesis I went to a tourist attraction and counted how many people went in over a period of time. One of the problems I had was that on the first day it was raining so there weren't many people in Whitby. My fourth hypothesis is that land use in Whitby is mainly for tourists. This diagram shows how land in Whitby is used. It shows that the bars, restaurants and tourist shops are all right near the beach, as well as all of the hotels. There is a bus stop next to the beach which will be used to drop off tourists that are visiting for the day. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
