in this report a comparison of long-distance day trip making to the lake district is made using data from surveys conducted in 1966 and 1974. the effect on the growth in the number of day trips by changes in car ownership levels, new motorways and increased fuel costs are discussed. the trip attraction models derived from the 1966 data contain some deficiences and these are described. a new model is derived from the improved data base of the 1974 survey. finally methods of forecasting future trips are proposed based on general cost formulae, changes in travel time and car ownership.
