Senior Visitors to Visitor Attractions

  This project aims to develop a new and innovative structured visit programme focused on the needs and wants of this increasingly significant older population group. Specifically aimed at the over 75 year old group, this project will evaluate existing programmes currently provided by visitor attractions elsewhere. The partners will thereafter devise a new cooperative structured visit programme across 4 visitor attractions in Edinburgh. This will provide the older visitor with a series of 8 activities focused on education, socialisation and wellbeing.

This project was funded through the Interface Multiparty competition. A competition which is open to groups of business in the food & drink, creative industries and tourism sectors collaborating with universities and research institutes. (Interface is hosted by Edinburgh Innovations Limited, a company incorporated in Scotland)
