As the latest results come in, it would appear as though Wales has outstretched Britain as a popular tourist destination. The Great British Tourism Survey found that even more people made a trip to Wales in 2013 than they did in 2012, reaching an impressive 9.93 million last year, a figure up by 3.4 per cent.

Tourism Minister Edwina Hart has been quick to back Welsh tourism, having opened the new £68 million bypass on the A477 earlier this month that will improve travelling times for those driving to Pembrokeshire. The Minister is also due to visit the new Coppet Hall Beach Centre and Michelin star, celebrity chef-run Coast Restaurant, nearby Saundersfoot seaside holiday cottages, which had been funded by a European grant.

In line with the recent positive figures, the Minister has said, as reported in this Welsh Government article, “I’m delighted that the Welsh Government is able to support iconic projects such as Coppet Hall Beach Centre and Coast Restaurant” which is hoped to improve Pembrokeshire’s offering to visitors.
