Tourism is an expanding economic activity which generated $150 billion in 1988 for the tourism industry worldwide. Europe received some 180 million tourists in 1988 and the UK alone attracted ~5 million overseas tourists in the same year. A large proportion of all overseas visitors to Britain visit London, generating a substantial income of over #4700 million. This article examines some of the geographical dimensions of tourism in London, looks at the problems of accommodating increased numbers of visitors and concludes with a discussion of London Docklands as a new area of tourist development in the capital. -Author
