Abstract

This study used Tumanan and Lansangan’s (2012) multi-dimensional methodological framework to examine the emotional attachment to place, as experienced by two hundred and sixty three patrons within eight English public houses. Findings suggest participants view these types of premises as a ‘third place’, after home and work, and that place attachment is mediated predominantly by social factors. Patrons felt a stronger place attachment to welcoming premises, which promoted a sense of belonging and an inclusive atmosphere. Place attachment was also higher for premises with socialisation opportunities, those visited more frequently and premises in close proximity to home. Findings are discussed in relation to previous research and provide implications for studying these types of complex, recreational settings.
