Continuum earnings report signals 13 per cent profit increase
POSTED 25 Feb 2016 . BY Alice Davis
Continuum Attractions has doubled its turnover in the space of two years, boosting its profits by an expected 13 per cent, the company said.

The pre-audit annual accounts demonstrate revenues of £18m (US$25m, €23m), thanks in part to the success of Coronation Street The Tour, which welcomed more than 500,000 visitors during its April 2014 to December 2015 run.

In further good news for Continuum, the London Stock Exchange included the UK attractions management company on its newly released report, 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

“Over the last 10 years we’ve focused on establishing Continuum Attractions as a leading visitor attraction operator in the UK,” said company CEO Juliana Delaney. “We own a unique space in the market place between theme parks and museums that no one else owns – and we do it successfully. To be recognised by the London Stock Exchange in this report is a fitting testament to that commercial focus and the strength of the tourism sector.”

Continuum, which runs six cultural attractions across the UK, recently announced new operations for 2016, including a collaboration with the Royal Mint on its upcoming visitor centre and the RSPB on a Sherwood Forest experience.

Delaney added: “Following our most successful year yet again delivering double digit growth at the bottom line, we’re looking to double our portfolio of attractions in the next five years across the UK and into Northern Europe.”
