Fun in the sun at Puxton Park
PUXTON Park has recorded its busiest ever period with more than 25,000 visitors flocking to the South West Attraction and says it expects the surge to continue.
During the two week Easter school holiday period the Adventure Park, in Hewish, welcomed more than 25,000 people through its doors during unseasonably warm weather.
Its busiest day, on Easter Monday, saw more than 2,000 people visit and with above average temperature expected to last, the park anticipates the surge to continue.
Above average temperatures are expected for the April-June period and Puxton says this warmer weather could help boost both its trade and the UK tourism industry as a whole.
Families flocked to Puxton in their hundreds yesterday afternoon (Wednesday) and basked in the grounds enjoying its outdoor activities.
The park saw an unprecedented amount of its homemade ice cream sold as young visitors enjoyed the warm weather and cooled down in the cold water attractions.
Puxton’s Managing Director, Alistair Mead, said: “We are delighted to have recorded our busiest ever week in Puxton’s history, which demonstrates families are choosing to stay at home rather than going abroad.
“We are pulling visitors from all over the UK, which is fantastic news and we hope that the hot weather will help boost the tourism industry as a whole in the West Country.
“The exceptional weather yesterday saw yet another fantastic day in terms of visitors with lots of fun had by all and we hope we see more of this to come.”
