Princes of Gwynedd could boost Welsh tourism

BBC Wales History

A heritage and tourism summit was held at the historic Plas Mawr Elizabethan Town House in Conwy yesterday.

The summit, organised by the Welsh Assembly Government and Cadw (the historic environment service of the Welsh Assembly Government) and involving European experts, discussed ways in which promoting Welsh heritage could boost Welsh tourism.

A recent report, Valuing the Welsh Historic Environment, calculated that heritage contributes £100 million each year to the Welsh Economy.

Recruiting tour guides and creating online Welsh history guides have already been identified by tourism organisation as ways of using Welsh history to increase revenue.

Marilyn Lewis, the director of Cadw, also said that there are opportunities to use the exciting and potent tales of Princess of Gwynedd to boost Welsh tourism, and that these stories should be more widely told.
