This chapter presents an account of the recent fortunes and contemporary condition of post-mature coastal tourism resorts in the countries of Northern Europe. In particular, it highlights the variability of decline among seaside resorts. In addition, the chapter separates the causes of decline in Northern European seaside resorts from the consequences, and alerts the reader to economic restructuring and cultural change in the late 20th century as more fundamental, and hitherto neglected, causal structures.
