Traditional guest house holiday makers are largely a thing of the past as the legacy is replaced with today’s tourism mobility and interests. North Wales by geography is an hour from the millions of frequent repeating visitors from the mid and north west of England and in order to maintain the standards of appeal Wales must balance environment and national identity with attraction, satisfaction and convenience.

Ironically it is the beautiful North Wales coast which is currently subject to flood risk and flood defences which are sensitively introduced and where tidal lagoons can holistically address multiple prospects for tourism and local socio-economic improvements as well as sustainable energy.
