£5 Million Tourism Fund


The Deputy Minister for Arts and Sport, Dawn Bowden, has launched a £5 million Brilliant Basics tourism fund for 2023 to 2025.


Brilliant Basics is a capital fund to deliver small-scale tourism infrastructure improvements across Wales.


Previous projects funded by Brilliant Basics have included electric vehicle charging points, improved toilet and car parking facilities, accessible changing places facilities and improved signage and interpretation panels.


Brilliant Basics will also support projects that improve accessibility at sites and those that make their destinations more environmentally sustainable.


2023 is Wales’ Year of Trails which presents the tourism sector with an opportunity to showcase attractions, landscapes and coastline through routes and trails.


Brilliant Basics will encourage local authorities and national parks to consider the entire visitor experience and the essential infrastructure that makes a trail experience complete, from pathways, to parking to making facilities accessible for all.    


The closing date for expressions of interest is the 16 March 2023.
