CHANGES IN SUPPLY AND DEMAND

Case study: DECLINING SEASIDE TOURISM IN BLACKPOOL, UK

In Britain the first health resorts were inland health spas, towns and villages that contained local mineral waters. Until the 19th Century coastal areas in the UK were associated with fear and repulsion, associated with smuggling, shipwrecks and invasion. The arrival of the railways in the 1830s connected coastal areas with large urban centres and they then became very popular.
