Our cultural tourism and heritage round table on 6th July at the London offices of Historic England will be looking at how we protect our heritage from the negative effects of tourism while creating new and exciting visitor experiences at sites both in the UK and around the world.

Historic England's Director of Planning, Ian Morrison, will be speaking about the importance of making historic sites more sustainable financially while improving the digital experience for visitors.

Also joining our discussions will be Andrew Croft, Director from Chris Blandford Associates, which consults on heritage management as well as landscape master-planning and design. The practice has worked on the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London and Stonehenge and is currently overseeing work to minimise destruction to the Orkney Islands from cruise shipping.
