UK Park Growth
Research suggests that the UK ‘staycation’ market is experiencing a boom following the end of the first lockdown, with a similar surge continuing into 2021. A survey suggested that 73% of Brits are likely to travel within the UK after coronavirus (YouGov). With only 1 in 3 looking to venture off abroad, UK holidays will be in high demand for the years ahead. With that being said, the park home industry is growing and there is no better time to develop and strengthen your business or begin your journey within the industry.
