Touring & Camping – Old

Camping in North Wales is making a comeback this year - here’s why!

According to our holiday booking experts here at Lyons Holiday Parks, camping in North Wales is on the rise again this year – and is looking likely to be the next ‘hottest’ trend for a third season running.

The UK tourism and travel market changed drastically following the pandemic, with campsites across the UK seeing a huge surge in camping, touring, and motorhome bookings. Last year, a record-breaking number of happy campers visited Lyons St Mary’s Touring Park in Gronant.

But what exactly are the reasons behind swapping all-inclusive hotel breaks for air beds and gas cookers…?
