The survey programme was originally designed to answer the basic question – who are the cultural tourists? The research programme has progressively addressed different aspects of cultural visitor behaviour. In 1997 the focus was on motivations, and the position of cultural visitation within overall leisure and tourism consumption. Statements relating to cultural motivations were added, which were developed through the study of ‘new producers’ by Saskia Goedhart (1997). The theoretical perspectives which were introduced into the research included Bourdieu’s notion of cultural capital.
