Tourism in Neath Port Talbot has increased by seven percent, to over £110m, significantly contributing to the local economy.
Over the past ten years, Neath Port Talbot has invested in creating a world class mountain biking destination at Afan Forest Park, which has recently soared in popularity, and its on-going regeneration of Aberavon Seafront attracts hoards of visitors annually.
The business development officers from the Neath Port Talbot council hope to capitalise on this boost by working closely with tourism operators to raise the county’s profile as a visitor destination.
They plan to raise awareness on what Neath Port Talbot has to offer, such as its numerous amusement parks and arcades including Stardust Leisure and Silverline Amusements, which are in Neath itself, and several more in Port Talbot.
Neath Port Talbot council is committed to continually investing in the development of tourism facilities to increase the number of visitors to the county.
