Prince Charles Calls For Tourists To Visit Flood Hit Towns

Prince Charles calls for tourists to visit flood-hit parts of UK this spring

Prince Charles has called on those looking for a spring break to head to regions most affected by December’s floods

Prince weighs in on what we can do to ensure businesses bounce back

HRH Prince Charles has called upon those looking to escape for an Easter break to holiday in regions across the UK that were hit the hardest by this winter’s devastating floods in an open letter in the Daily Telegraph.

Writing in the newspaper, Prince Charles said the best way to help regions devastated the most by flooding was to visit them in an attempt to keep “vital businesses going” following on from severe storms battering parts of England, Wales and Scotland in December last year, with some particular areas being flooded a total of three times in as many weeks.

Many caravan parks, businesses and attractions in some of the country’s most scenic spots were destroyed during the storms and some will still struggle to ensure they open in time for the 2016 holiday season.

Writing about the winter floods, Prince Charles, who is patron of ‘English Tourism Week’ said: “In the same way that gardens and entire landscapes can amaze us with their ability to recover relatively quickly from floods and storms, so too can their people.

“The way that local communities have pulled together to ensure a speedy recovery – even after the devastation and heart-breaking losses we have seen in recent months – has been truly remarkable.”

“I personally believe that we are incredibly lucky to be blessed with such a rich assortment of historic and cultural gems in this country, not to mention the jewel of our national parks and, above all, some of the wonders of our many hidden gardens, which are once again ready to amaze and delight visitors.

“I can only encourage you, therefore, to enjoy the best of what Great Britain has to offer this spring.”
