Within the last decade film-induced tourism has gained increasing attention from academics and the industry alike. While most research has focused on the tourism-inducing effects of film productions, not much has been written about the film location tourists themselves. This book examines the on-site experiences of these tourists by drawing from various disciplines, including geography, sociology and psychology. The author accompanied tourists to film locations from "The Lord of the Rings", "Star Wars" and "The Sound of Music" and conducted extensive on-site research with them. The results show that only by understanding the needs and wants of film location tourists can film be utilised as a successful and sustainable instrument within strategic destination marketing portfolios.

The phenomenon of film tourism is still a new field of study, and although we know that film and television inspires people to travel to film locations, we don't fully understand why. This book is therefore extremely timely and important, and delivers incisive commentary from one of the world's foremost experts in this niche area. This is a unique, highly readable resource for anyone interested in this dynamic part of the tourism industry.Simon Hudson, University of South Carolina, USAThis book is an extremely useful tool for VisitBritain to identify the global importance of film tourism and the impact on other destinations and attractions. It is essential reading for anyone in the tourism industry who wants to use film tourism as a 'hook' and I would certainly recommend it to any destination marketeers.Alison McKay, Brand Partnerships Manager, VisitBritain
