What's new for 2024 across our parks?

  • Share on Facebook

We added loads of new features to parks in 2023, from launching new Marina Bar and Stages entertainment venues, to a whole host of new activities, and even a brand-new park in the form of Skegness. And for 2024, we have even more investments to shout about!

From creating a new Adventure Village to adding fun-filled new activities and even more brilliant food brands, there's so much to look forward to at Haven in 2024.

Find out more about the exciting openings across our parks this year.

Mini Aerial Adventure, just one of our activities for tots. Hafan y Mor in North Wales shown

Mini Aerial Adventure

Coming soon to Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, this mini ropes course is a real hit with under fives, and will form part of the park's new Adventure Village. Kids are strapped into their harness and then find their way around a challenging mini course - before zipping down the tot-sized zipwire to finish!

Outdoor Stage

Also arriving in 2024 at Burnham-on-Sea is our fantastic Outdoor Stage - the perfect place to be entertained while enjoying the park's great outdoors. There'll be something for everyone here, from shows to film screenings and everything in-between, but we think little ones will especially love seeing their favourite Seaside Squad characters here!

Seaside Treats

Rounding up the brilliant new tot-friendly additions at Burnham-on-Sea's Adventure Village is our Seaside Treats: serving up brilliant ice creams, waffles, pancakes and just about every sweet treat little ones (and not-so little ones!) could dream of.

All opening summer 2024* (subject to plans).
