Explore Lanarkshire for the Longer this Spring
The Lanarkshire Tourism Marketing Partnership today (Monday March 8) launched its Spring campaign with a wide range of family fun offers starting from only £1 to help attract more tourists to Lanarkshire from throughout Scotland to play and stay in Central Scotland’s playground.
As the ‘Staycation’ trend continues to prove popular, people continue to choose to holiday at home, and with so much to do in and around Lanarkshire, visitors are being encouraged to make the most of some of Scotland’s most visited attractions, such as the National Museum of Rural Life, New Lanark World Heritage Site and Scotland’s biggest theme park, M&Ds, and turn their day trip into a short break
The Lanarkshire Tourism Marketing Partnership has teamed up with local tourism businesses to provide a series of fantastic offers ranging from family hotel breaks for a family of 4 from £45 at the Express by Holiday Inn, Hamilton and family tickets to attractions starting as low as a £1.
Great deals from now until the end of April
Included in these great offers is the chance to experience Scotland’s premier indoor karting experience at Scotkart in Cambuslang. Also home to Scotland’s first indoor ‘extreme paintballing’, ideal for rainy days, the venue is offering those who are after an action packed weekend the chance to experience paintablling for only £9.99 per person.
Scotland’s biggest theme park, M&Ds, is also guaranteeing a great weekend away, with family play and stay offers including overnight stays at the 4-star Alona Hotel in Strathclyde Park and complimentary day passes to M&Ds at great special rates.
To keep the kids occupied during the holiday period enjoy a great kids go free offer at the iconic New Lanark World Heritage Site, home of the restored 18th century cotton mill and factory.
Stephen Balfour at the Lanarkshire Tourism Marketing Partnership, said:
“We are aware that people in Scotland are still deciding to spend their holidays at home and explore what the country has to boast. To build on the success of last year’s campaign we want to showcase what great accommodation and attractions Lanarkshire can provide.”
“Lanarkshire has an excellent range of high quality visitor attractions including the iconic New Lanark World Heritage Centre and Summerlee Scottish Museum of Industrial Life. What’s more Lanarkshire is also home to several five-star attractions including Chatelherault Country Park, the National Museum of Rural Life and Low Parks Museum in Hamilton.
“There is wealth of interesting and exciting things to see and do which can’t be crammed into one day. Although the area is within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh, an over-night stay can turn it into a cheap and quick getaway destination.”
