The line graph illustrates the proportion of visitors to four different tourist destinations in Brighton from 1980 to 2010.
Overall, Pavilion was the place attracting the largest number of tourists after 1990. While there was an upward trend in the percentage visiting the Pavilion and the Pier, a downward tendency could be seen in the proportions of visitors to other destinations throughout the period shown.
In 1980, the proportion visiting the Festival was at exactly 30%, which was the highest proportion in this year, while the figures for the Pavilion, the Pier and the Art Gallery were roughly 22%, 21% and exactly 10% respectively. Between 1980 and 1995, there was a surge in the proportion of visitors to the Pavilion, at about 50%, which was the highest point of the whole line graph. By contrast, the Art Gallery and the Festival saw its percentage of tourists decrease slightly to around 25% and 21% respectively, while the Pier’s figure for tourists remained stable at 10% over the period.
Throughout the remainder of the period, there were gradual increases in the figures for the Festival and the Pier, below 30% and above 20% respectively, whereas the Pavilion and the Art Gallery saw its percentage visiting decline significantly to about 31% and below 10% respectively.
