The primary focus of this article is to provide a theoretical insight into the relationship between film induced tourism and destination imagery, which in turn can be used to market a tourism destination. In order to achieve this, strategic conversations were carried out with the key stakeholders behind the development of the Yorkshire (UK) brand. Yorkshire will be used as the lens through which the film induced tourism phenomenon will be observed as it is the film location for many popular English television series. In addition, this article draws upon the literature background and the theoretical context of the film induced tourism phenomenon in relation to destination imagery. The issues which emerged from these and the literature review highlighted many implications for the future development of these locations such as the use of destination imagery in the promotion of a film location. © The Author(s) 2010.
