Tourists spend £700m in North Wales this summer

Families looking to book a getaway should consider North Wales, as it is a favourite destination among those taking staycations.

According to tourism bosses, £700 million was spent throughout the summer by visitors this year, with people coming to see the region's scenery and attractions.

Speaking to the Daily Post, Dewi Davies, regional strategy director of tourism partnership North Wales, said: "We’ve got great attractions and great places for people to enjoy and have a great time. There will be a lot of day trips and a lot of short breaks while the family holiday – people taking the traditional one week or maybe more in the UK – is pretty strong."

He went on to say that the staycation is "here to stay", while adding that the area often welcomes visitors from, or staying in, Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester.

Another region which has proved popular with visitors is North Yorkshire, with Welcome to Yorkshire's area director David Shields telling the Yorkshire Post that it has been a "terrific year" for attractions in the county.
