Welsh attractions to receive cash injection

Visitors to hotels in North Wales may soon see some of the area's favourite attractions undergo improvement in light of a recent funding boost.

Trac Mon, a motor racing circuit located at Ty Croes, Anglesey, will be receiving £200,000 of investment, while Snowdon Mountain Railway is benefiting from £300,000.

General manager of the Snowdon Mountain Railway Alan Kendall said that the attraction is excited at the prospect of welcoming new carriages as a result of the investment, especially as the existing models date back to 1895.

Finally, the Rhug Estate in Corwen will be receiving £200,000 to improve its facilities by offering a new café and bistro to visitors.

"The diverse nature of these three projects is a reflection of the range of attractions and activities which can be enjoyed in Wales," commented heritage minister Alun Ffred Jones.

VisitBritain recently predicted that the number of visitors in Wales would increase as people want to visit Anglesey, which is associated with Prince William and Kate Middleton.
