Travel and Tourism students visited Brighton on October 6 as part of a project based on attractions in the city.
Six HND students were given a guided tour and a talk about prospective sites for development and on issues to consider when building a new attraction.
The group also visited the Sea Life Centre and Brighton Pavilion, where they were given talks about managing the attractions, and Seven Sisters Country Park in Seaford, where they met the ranger.
They also visited Thorpe Park on October 10 to learn about the management of theme parks.
The students are researching developing a visitor attraction and hospitality provision, and the two trips will form the basis of the project they will present in class in January.
“Both trips were really interesting, and I know the students gathered a lot of information they’ll be able to use to develop their research projects,” said tutor Nicole Frimley.
“They have some great ideas already and asked some thoughtful questions during the visits, so I’m looking forward to hearing their presentations in the New Year.”
