Abstract [en]

Walkable places are often considered as an attraction for locals, visitors and tourists and as a measure of urban quality. This chapter explores the extent to which there is a link between the walkability of an urban tourism destination and: likability of places, as perceived by tourists; the number of visitors to tourist attractions. The VisitBritain/VisitEngland agency, a public body funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, publishes an annual report regarding the number of visitors to English attractions. This database provides an opportunity to learn about the popularity of attractions, both free and paid. Tourists will visit places that are considered to be less attractive if they are accessible, producing a U-curve pattern when addressing the relations between walkability and TripAdvisor ranking. The Walk Score measurement aims to describe the positive walking attributes of a location from the perspective of a permanent resident, including daily errands as a key factor in determining walkability.
