Alan Richmond of Splashdown Quaywest

Splashdown Quaywest Managing Director, Alan Richmond, is full of anticipation for a great summer season at the Paignton waterpark, Splashdown.

“It’s hard to believe, but it is our 10th season here and we can’t wait to get started. We had a great season last year with the glorious weather and another summer like that would really be fantastic for us. The weather was so good last year and Easter being late that we’ve decided to open over the Easter long weekend. We will be open every weekend in April and both bank holidays in May, the water is heated, like a normal swimming pool, which sometimes surprises people and you can wear a wetsuit, which you can hire for free or bring your own! Hopefully, our being open early will encourage everyone to start thinking about the summer and give a good old boost to the early season down here.”

Mr Richmond continues, "there’s a real buzz about tourism here on The English Riviera, with plenty of people looking to holiday in the UK rather than abroad still. Let’s hope that it spells for a bumper season for us and all the other local tourism businesses. I am particularly looking forward to seeing how The English Riviera campaign at Waterloo shakes out, it’s a great opportunity to showcase this fantastic part of the world.”

Full details of the opening schedule can be found directly on the Splashdown website.
