This film explores the varying fortunes of what is arguably Britain’s most iconic tourist destination Following the stages of Butler’s Model the film explores Blackpool before the railway age, Blackpool in its heyday, the decline of Blackpool’s tourism trade and looks at the possible future for the town. Supported by maps, archive footage and interviews, this film challenges students to think about the concept of tourism and incorporates suggestions for sustainable development of smaller tourist destinations – an alternative to the boom ‘n’ bust of large scale tourism development.
