An introductory section details the achievements of the London Dockland Development Corporation and then attention is turned to the 1987 recommendations of the London Visitor and Convention Bureau for a strategy to develop tourism in London. There is a pronounced western bias in London tourism and proposals to alter the balance in favour of the east involve the development of attractions in Dockland. It is expected that day visitors will be the major participants, but there is scope for encouraging a change of emphasis to the business tourist if suitable accommodation is provided. Prospects are good and some employment should be created. -D.G.Price
