A Cracking Easter at Devon’s Top Attractions

A prolonged dry spell has given Devon Tourist Attractions a boost over the two week long Easter school holidays.

With the Bank Holiday weekend falling right at the end of the school break, a fortnight of dry bright weather has meant steady visitor numbers since Devon schools broke up on 31st March.

Chris Murray, Chairman of the Devon Association of Tourist Attractions (DATA) and owner of Pennywell Farm near Buckfastleigh explains: “It has been perfect attraction weather and perfect Pennywell Farm weather, not really warm enough for the beach but nice enough for families to want to get out and about.

“DATA members are reporting visitor numbers up anything between 5% and 28% on Easter 2016.”

He added, “There has been no noticeable BREXIT effect and the long run up to the Bank Holiday weekend has been beneficial for visitors and attractions alike, with strong visitor flow throughout rather than a few manic days.”

With some schools in other parts of the country having their Easter holidays a week later than Devon schools added to the dry, bright forecast, attractions in Devon have every reason to be optimistic for the rest of the week.
