This chapter presents and discusses the results of a survey on visitors’ expectations and experiences of a key geological heritage site in the UK; the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast World Heritage Site, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Through a focus on the interpretation provision, an evaluation of the on-site interpretation (until 2012) is undertaken with the view to providing some valuable user insights into how the interpretation can be improved to meet the needs and expectations of visitors. The outcomes from the survey also have some implications for management of the World Heritage Site particularly in relation to the challenges associated with delivering a high quality visitor experience without compromising the conservation of the site.
