Abstract:This article identifies stakeholders' perspectives of the impact of film- and television-induced tourism on locations using Yorkshire as the case study. Yorkshire has been the film location for a number of popular English TV series and as such is the subject of much location research in the tourism discipline. A series of strategic conversations were held with key stakeholders involved in tourism and destination marketing. This identified a wide range of both positive and negative perspectives of the impacts of film and television using Yorkshire as a location.
