Year 11 Leisure, Travel and Tourism pupils received a visit from Sue McKay who works as a Blue Badge Tourist Guide. Sue expressed her own personal experiences working as a tourist guide in the growing Leisure and Tourism industry in Northern Ireland. She informed students why Belfast is the top place to visit in 2018 as evidenced by the “Lonely Planet.”
During the talk, Sue outlined a multitude of local destinations based in Bangor and Belfast which have benefited from increased tourism. This was a rewarding experience for our Year 11 students allowing them to see how they can contribute to the evolving tourism industry in the future.
