Opening Of St. David's Will Have Rippling Benefits Across City
February 22, 2010
Cardiff, U.K. - Around a million visitors each week are flocking to Cardiff to see the new shopping centre, providing a welcome boost to city centre business.
Hilton Cardiff – the only five star hotel in the city centre – has already seen an increase in bookings from across Wales and the UK from shoppers wanting to see what the city has to offer and is expecting the trend to continue.
General manager Marie Fagan said: “The opening of St David’s will add more value to Cardiff as a destination to visitors from across the UK. Cardiff is already an exciting city to visit and the new St David’s adds another dimension to what the city has to offer.
“St David’s will certainly stimulate more demand in the tourism industry in Cardiff. This will help to put Cardiff on the weekend city break map and will help us as a city to compete effectively with other key UK cities which now benefit from high visitor rates. You can now not only come to enjoy sporting events, concerts and the cultural side of the city but shopping as well so Cardiff will have the complete package.”
