Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach owner Albert Jones has stated that he was “delighted with the attendances” during the summer season.
The historic pleasure park, opened in 1909 in the popular Norfolk coastal resort, saw visitor numbers rise significantly alongside the mercury, providing some recompense for a wet March and April.
“We had such a poor start at Easter so we have been playing catch up, but with the lovely weather we have had it has certainly been a massive boost.”
Though the pleasure beach prospered, Jones noted that the hot weather also had its downfalls.
“If I dare say it has been too hot some days because people have gone to the beach, but we are not complaining.”
“It is just a shame we had the rain on the Sunday of the bank holiday weekend when we actually closed early.”
Despite the fluctuations in the weather, Jones added that during the heatwaves the Pleasure Beach entertained “a lot of happy customers.”
“We have been delighted with the feedback about the place.”
