This book has concentrated on tourism and the performing arts rather than on the whole of cultural tourism. Existing studies of cultural tourism have often included activities which were so different that they should be studied in isolation (at least at first) (see Figure 9.1). There is also an omission in many studies: that of entertainment. In addition, the term cultural tourism has been frequently used to cover all visits to museums, historic houses or theatres regardless of whether or not those were the reason for being a tourist in the first place.
