Dark Tourism

Dark tourism has been around for many hundreds, if not thousands of years, but is only now coming to the fore. Dark tourism refers to the specific locations’ tourists visit due to their links to death or tragedy. There are many theories as to why people are attracted to these places.

This worksheet is a simple introduction to the topic looking at how similar destinations advertise themselves, whether it is thought right to advertise these places as ‘attractions’ and whether there is a location they would like to visit of the same genre.

These questions could be an interesting way to begin a unit on a tragic episode in our planets history and explain how we could learn from our past.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
