Visitor numbers boost for Yorkshire’s Lightwater Valley

Lightwater Valley in North Yorkshire has received a welcome boost to its visitor numbers.

Figures released by the theme park show an 11 per cent increase in visitor numbers and a 9 per cent increase in revenue for 2014 compared to the previous year.

Last year we also held a Meet the Gruffalo event and we have plans this coming season for similar special ‘celebrity’ visits.

“We are investing £350,000 on replacing the existing crazy golf and a new vintage car rally ride as well as looking at other activities to build on last year’s success.”
