STAY EAT DO
Developing Tourism Itineraries across North East Wales A
groundbreaking, project, developed by The Clwydian Range Tourism
Group. A coordinator was 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.
