what do visitors want12




What do visitors want:

  • From regular activities
  • Change of scenery

“It’s just emptying your mind. You’re not under pressure, you can relax if you’re not under pressure” (Pre-family, Watford)

  • Always to relax mentally
  • Sometimes to relax physically

“Somebody else waiting on you, making your breakfast, your lunch, your dinner” (Family, Watford)

what do visitors want14

Eating out/ drinking


What do visitors want:

“I would rather have fish and chips on the sea wall with a good looking woman, then be in a five star hotel having a great meal with an ugly girl” (Empty Nester, Functionals)

“I prefer localised shops that have got a lot more atmosphere, you get a lot more service, people are a lot more pleasant, they’re not 18 year olds on minimum wage. These are people’s livelihoods and they put their effort into these businesses” (Pre-family, High Streets)

attract more visitors imagery


Attract more visitors - Imagery:


  • Local character – people or built landscapes
  • Luxury, pampering – champagne encapsulates this, yet achievable
  • Unique, or at least different – therefore not reminded of ‘home’ – history a bonus
  • ‘Quality’ time
  • Water evokes sense of relaxation
  • Authenticity


  • Generic images – could be anywhere (or more importantly, could be ‘home’)
  • Be careful of niche themes – individual activities
