Seaside Towns in the Age of Austerity

Project Director: Professor Christina Beatty / Professor Steve Fothergill
Project Duration: 2014

This research updates a previous study undertaken by CRESR in 2010 to assess the scale and location of the British seaside tourist Industry.  This study utilises the most recent data available to bring the estimates up to date and investigate to what extent the number of jobs supported by tourism in Britain's seaside towns have suffered in an age of austerity since the post 2008 recession.
