This report examines the ways in which patterns of youth drinking are influenced by place and particular towns (‘party cities’) that have become associated with the rituals of heavy drinking, or the ‘messy’ night out. This study focused on three known types of place where young people drink: the home, the neighbourhood and the town centre. The report investigates young people aged between 15 and 24 from two geographical areas with differing levels of alcohol-related harms. Drawing on mixed methods of research, the report looks at: how and where young people drink; the role that drinking plays in the social life of over 18-year-olds; how locality impacts on 15- to 16-year-olds’ leisure opportunities; the visibility of adult drinking; and local variations in policing and security.
