Tourism (1582 words)
Tourism in the modern sense of the word did not develop until the nineteenth century; that was leisure travel, which today forms the larger part of the tourist industry.
It was not until the nineteenth century that leisure tourism really began to develop, as people began to "winter" in warmer climates, or to visit places with health-giving mineral waters[?], in order to cure a whole variety of diseases from gout to liver disorders and bronchitis.
The father of modern mass tourism was Thomas Cook[?] who, on July 5, 1841, organised the first package tour[?] in history, by chartering a train to take a group of teetotalers from Leicester to a rally in Loughborough[?], some twenty miles away.
