Ten Tourism Projects in Running for Share of £27.7m EU Pot


Ten projects to boost tourism across Wales could receive £27.7m in European funding.

A water park at Llys y Fran Water Park, a regeneration project in Saundersfoot and a railway museum in Aberystwyth are among the plans which could benefit.

The Welsh Government said the potential value – if other public and private funding is secured – would be £85m. It said it was the single biggest EU investment in the sector, with cash stretching over five years. Ten projects have been picked and will now be individually assessed and agreed before building work can start.

They are:

  • Pendine Land Speed Cultural Centre and Eco Resort Complex, Carmarthenshire
  • Saundersfoot Harbour regeneration scheme, Pembrokeshire
  • Llys y Fran Water Park, Pembrokeshire
  • Porthcawl Marine Centre of Excellence, Bridgend county
