£4m In Government Grants Benefit Welsh Tourism Businesses

Tourism businesses in North Wales have received £4 million in grants from the government to help them develop their offering and attract more people to the region.

The Daily Post shared the details of where this grant money has been allocated and how it’s been used to benefit the region.

One project that was offered £500,000 was the development of a luxury hotel in the Conwy Valley. Developers purchased Caer Rhun Hall with the intention of turning it into a high-end escape in the countryside.

Another scheme that received £720,000 was the waterpark and adventure centre in Rhyl. SC2, which had a total development cost of £15 million, is due to open in spring of 2019 when visitors will be able to access all of the park’s exciting water slides and other attractions.

Plassey Leisure Park in Wrexham and the developers responsible for Sandymount House in Rhosneigr each received £260,000 for their projects too.

Other smaller awards of £40,000 and £45,000 were made to the Anglesey Model Village and Llyn Pilgrim Way Holidays in Pwllheli respectively.

Lord Elis-Thomas, deputy minister for culture, sport and tourism, said that he was “delighted” that the government was able to “support such innovative and high-quality projects”.

“Wales has undergone a transformation in terms of the quality of its tourism offer and this was to be seen very clearly at the recent North Wales Tourism Awards as well as through the international accolades and recognition that have been gained over recent years,” he stated.
