Lyons Holiday Parks: What Went On in 2021?

Take a look back at the year we’ve just had at Lyons Holiday Parks and share some of our most memorable moments with us – the good, the not-so-good, and the downright bizarre!

2021 has been one of the best and strangest years on record, not just for us at Lyons Holiday Parks but for the nation as a whole. We started off in a cold and lonely lockdown, but gradually welcomed you all back to our wonderful selection of parks and had a belter of a summer!

Take a look at our timeline below and join in on our journey, where we’ll take you through the highs and lows of 2021 month by month. From our family to yours, we truly thank you all for helping us help you create some wonderful memories, lots of photo opportunities, some events to remember (and probably some nights to forget!)
