It’s been a magical summer in Pakefield With the 2012 Olympics boosting tourism the whole country over, few were surprised when the 2013 tourist season was a record-busting success for Suffolk. But with 2014 set to be an even bigger year for the region’s leisure and tourism industries, just what is driving the Pakefield holiday boom?
With many visitors returning in 2013 after enjoying a Suffolk break last year, area is still playing a major role in driving the resurgence in British tourism. The whole county is in on the action for 2014, and is fast becoming one of the holiday highlights of the whole country.
Suffolk’s tourist attractions have also welcomed the influx of visitors. Martin Dupee, operations director of the Dinosaur Adventure, Banham Zoo and Africa Alive, told the North Norfolk News: ‘We are heading for a record year at Dinosaur Adventure with more than 200,000 visitors now being projected and, following lean years, both zoos are back well up to where they should be.’
Of course, summer 2013 in Suffolk has also been one of the sunniest summers on record, which has led to thousands of families heading east for a weekend of good old British seaside fun in the sun. No doubt they’ll be back in even greater numbers this year!
