Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The line graph shows the number of visitors who went to four tourist attractions in Edinburgh over a 30 year period (between 1980 and 2010).

In 1980 approximately 25% of tourists to Scotland visited the castle in Edinburgh. Visitor numbers reached a peak of 45% in 1995 and then dropped to 30% in 2010. The Festival had a more or less steady flow of visitors, ranging from 30% in 1980 to 28%, 30 years later. Although the percentage of visitors to the aquarium halved from 20% in 1980 to 10% in 2010, the most visits to this attraction (35%) were in 1985. Finally, there was a fluctuation in the percentage of tourists who chose to go to the zoo. In 1980 only 10% of visitors to Scotland went there and this percentage eventually doubled in 2010.

In conclusion, the castle was the most popular Edinburgh attraction for tourists who visited Scotland and not many visitors chose to go to the zoo. The number of visits to the aquarium fell in 2010 while the zoo visits increased. The festival  and castle figures remained approximately stable.
