Tourist attractions join forces to promote Burnham-On-Sea area

Tourist attractions in the Burnham-On-Sea area have joined forces this week to promote the region as a tourist destination.

Staff from Brean Leisure Park, Wookey Hole and Brean Pontins took part in a promotional push in the Midlands.

Organised by Somerset Tourism Association, the second tour of 2011 visited Asda stores around Birmingham.

Mike Barsby of Brean Leisure Park told "5,000 Somerset holiday information packs were handed out to shoppers and we received a very warm welcome from shoppers."

"Tourism is vitally important to the economy of our county, creating around 31,000 jobs and a billion pounds income annually."

"Promotional initiatives such as the Midlands tour play a major role in encouraging more people to holiday in our lovely county."
