This paper identifies key factors that have shapedthe development of cultural tourism in postindustrial cities in the UK and presents them in aconceptual model, examining the contextual comparabilities in the transformation of many UKcities. The model is tested with qualitative datagathered through in-depth interviews with keypersonnel who have varying degrees of responsibility for economic, tourism and cultural development in Glasgow. This research indicates thatwhile there are general factors that contribute tosuccessful cultural tourism development in postindustrial cities in the UK, local contextual characteristics are influential, making the development unique to each city.
