Pontin’s announces £50m investment in holiday parks

As the weak pound attracts increasing numbers of tourists from abroad, Pontin’s is gearing itself up to accommodate additional visitors.

Less than a month after it announced the decision to close Pontin’s Hemsby, Ocean Parcs – the owner of Pontin’s – has announced a huge £50 million investment to develop and refurbish its holiday parks.

The investment will create more than 2,000 new jobs; see the Pakefield Holiday Centre double in size; the refurbishment of both Brean Sands and Prestatyn Sands; and the redesigning and rebuilding of its Camber Sands and Southport Holiday Centres.

With more people choosing to take their holiday in the UK, Pontin’s is already reporting a significant increase in this year’s bookings with limited availability as some centres for half-term, Easter and the summer holidays.
