The University of Greenwich's Tourism Research Centre invites you to a seminar on Dark Tourism, which coincides with the compiling of a special edition of the 'International Journal of Tourism Cities.' The theme consists of dark tourism in cities and builds on research carried out by Tourism Research Centre members over a number of years in related fields such as cultural and heritage tourism.

Key note speakers include:

  • Professor John Lennon: co-author of the seminal work 'Dark Tourism: the attraction of death and disaster'
  • Sheldon Goodman: Westminster Tour Guide, expert on Cemetery Tours and founder of the Cemetery Club.

Refreshments will be served during the proceedings, which will conclude with a complimentary guided walking tour of the dark history of the Old Royal Naval College, beginning at 7.00pm.
