Firstly, the students received a talk, at the Brockhole Centre, on how the Lake District National Park Authority manages the 18 million visitors it receives annually.

The students deepened their understanding of the economic and social benefits of tourism but also became aware of the many environmental issues that large numbers of visitors can create in a rural area.

They then embarked on their Windermere Cruise and enjoyed the panoramic views of Lake Windermere and the surrounding mountains while they ate their lunch.

In Bowness the students then interviewed tourists and businesses to gather data for their geographical enquiries whilst fending off the paparazzi of Chinese tourists who seemed very keen to be seen on a photo with our students!
