From Strawberry Hill to The Dungeons, Alnwick Castle to Barnageddon, Gothic tourism is a fascinating, and sometimes controversial, area. This lively study considers Gothic tourism's aesthetics and origins, as well as its relationship with literature, film, folklore, heritage management, arts programming and the 'edutainment' business.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'McEvoy's rich, eloquent and compulsively readable account of Gothic tourism is set to define the field. Combining generous erudition with a knack for the entertaining anecdote, each page is crammed with fresh insights into this curious phenomenon, from the eighteenth-century delights of Horace Walpole's mansion Strawberry Hill to the modern thrills of ghost walks and scare attractions.' - Catherine Spooner, Reader in Literature and Culture, Lancaster University, UK
