Hemsby Beach Holiday Park has confirmed a new amusement arcade, indoor bowling alley and climbing wall will form part of the latest £1.3m investment from owner Richardson’s.

 

Alongside a new 200-space car park, the Caesar’s amusement arcade will be rebranded and renovated, following a wider £10m refurbishment of the former Seacroft holiday park.

“What we are trying to do is change our product model and it opens up Hemsby for everyone,” CEO Greg Munford told the Eastern Daily Press. “We want everyone in Hemsby to thrive.”

“The last thing we would want would be for it to lose its individuality, and the traders in Hemsby have given us nothing but support.”

The car park will offer free parking till May, while the entertainment and amusements will be open to the public in a bid to widen local engagement, part of Munford’s plans to change perceptions of the site as “an older Pontin’s style park that was bringing in coach loads of people to 1960s chalets.”

The investment will also include an outdoor-seating plaza, complementing the holiday park’s “shift in quality” that Munford stated is “paying dividends.”

The park’s boat hire is already 80 percent booked for the summer, with “very strong” bookings surging each time the prime minister made an announcement.
