The Olympic effect

There’s no doubt that the London 2012 Olympic Games inspired many people to become more active, however it’s had another knock-on effect – popularising holidays in certain areas of the country.

With the Paralympic Games now bringing out sporting fever once again, certain destinations are enjoying higher than average interest from potential holidaymakers.

One of the locations to benefit from Olympic and Paralympic interest is Weymouth in Dorset. The scene of Ben Ainslie’s historic gold medal and several other stand-out British performances is fast becoming one of the must-see places in the UK.

Waterside Holiday Group, which owns a holiday home park in the town, has already reported an increase in bookings. It is just one of the leisure parks located in Weymouth – visitors can also stay at several sites including Weymouth Bay Holiday Park, Pebble Bank, East Fleet Farm and Littlesea Holiday Park.

If you’re interested in visiting Weymouth, home of the sailing events at London 2012, you can find campsites in the area and check out local tourist attractions.

Don’t forget, before you set off you need to make sure that your touring caravan insuranceholiday lodge insurance or motorhome insurance is up to date. For a competitive quote from Coast call Freephone 0800 614 849.
