STAY EAT  DO 

Developing Tourism Itineraries across North East Wales

 A groundbreaking, new project, developed by The Clwydian Range Tourism Group. A coordinator has been appointed to develop tourist itineraries working with accommodation providers, hospitality business and activity providers to encourage visitors to come and explore the best of North East Wales, and stay longer.

A recent feasibility study  considered potential models in which our tourism offer can be more integrated, making best use of the area’s unique cultural heritage, landscape, food, language and identity, providing easier access for the tourist, encouraging more and longer stays and consequent business benefits to the sector.

Visit Wales and the Destination Management Partnerships of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham have identified the need to extend the duration of visitor stays as a priority, together with the promotion of a multi-faceted and unique tourism experience.

The STAY EAT DO project will :

  • Work with accommodation providers, hospitality businesses and activity providers to develop tourism itineraries that integrate STAY, EAT DO with the aim of creating more and longer stays within the area.
  • Work with identified partners in the marketing of the itineraries
  • Develop a sustainable model for taking the Stay, Eat & Do concept beyond the duration of this project.

Specifically, the Project will :

  • Engage with tourism businesses across North East Wales in order to develop a range of visitor itineraries with STAY EAT DO elements. These itineraries will include a variety of approaches:
  • Some with a specific activity focus
  • Some mixed activity
  • A variety of durations eg weekend, long weekend, week
  • A variety of target markets eg older cultural explorer couples, active family explorers, pre family explorers and scenic explorer couples
  • Themed weekends eg wellness, music, culture & heritage
  • Linking with Visit Wales, themed years and the proposed Wales Way routes
  • Work with the businesses within each itinerary to ensure familiarisation with the other businesses and to secure full engagement in promoting the itinerary through their existing marketing channels
  • Develop routes to market for the itineraries including :
    • Working with an identified online marketing partner
    • Creating and implementing a marketing plan including national press coverage, social media presence, regular blogs
