Join us at our Dark Tourism



When it comes to holiday jaunts, the site of a nuclear disaster zone, the home of a serial killer or the execution chamber of a former state prison don’t scream ‘wish you were here.’ But while it might not be everyone’s idea of fun, demand for macabre attractions and disturbing experiences that recreate horrific moments in history is growing – dark tourism is on the rise. This session is delivered by one of our tourism senior lecturers, Beverley Boden, and a member of the Institute for Dark Tourism Research.

The event will run online, more information will be given upon booking.

The session is suitable for students studying travel and tourism and those interested in pursuing a higher education qualification in the discipline
