G. Richards) 31 32 G. Richards Review of previous research and statistical sources As noted above, most of the studies of cultural visitation are undertaken by or for individual cultural attractions. Such studies are often commercially sensitive, and therefore often remain confidential. Even where the results are made public, the surveys are usually specially designed for the attraction, and therefore difficult to compare with those conducted elsewhere. Most academic studies of cultural tourism are descriptive, and are seldom based on empirical analysis of the visitor market.

1). As noted in previous research (Richards, 1996b) the frequency of visits to events, such as the performing arts and festivals, is far lower than for ‘heritage’ attractions. This is because the former require the tourist to obtain information about the staging of the event, acquire tickets, and in many cases also to have a command of the language. 2). In particular, the proportion of respondents visiting the performing arts and festivals is more than double that on holiday. The only exception is monuments, which are visited by more people on holiday than during their leisure time.

Richards 22 sheer variety of cultural attractions makes it difficult to construct a simple typology or conceptual framework which can encompass their diversity and simultaneously capture the common threads that bind these elements together. The following section considers the problem of developing attraction typologies in the area of culture.
