Journeys made for leisure are not a key target for UK government transport policy yet leisure travel accounts for a large proportion of car mileage in the UK and increasingly adds to congestion, pollution, accident and parking problems. Journeys to National Trust properties in the south west of the UK in 2001 provide a case study of travel to heritage attractions. Sustainable transport opportunities are explored through analysis of travel distance, travel mode and experience of congestion. Travel distance varies according to leisure setting, location and visitor and visit characteristics pointing to some important opportunities and constraints for transport policy.
