Tourism in the UK
The history of tourism in the UK provides an example - or model - of how a tourist industry might develop in any particular nation. The UK's national parks give a good case study for this topic.
Butler developed a model which shows how any tourist resort may grow. A resort may start off from being a small, low key, destination. He suggests that all resorts go through the same sort of process.
The Butler model is a generalisation, and so not all resorts will follow this process.
