Don't just take our word for it...

Splashdown Waterparks

We have worked with the team at Resort Magazine for many years. We regard the Resort Magazine as the leading tourism publication in the Dorset region; its reach across the area is second to none and its appeal to visitors unquestionable - we see literally thousands leave the waterpark each year. It is a key part of our summer promotional activity...
Jackie Richmond - Splashdown Waterparks

Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park

Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park has advertised in the Resort magazine since the first issue back in 1992, as we still believe that it is the leading tourist magazine in Dorset. The offers we placed this year performed extremely well, which is testament to its appeal in the area. The Resort team are a pleasure to work with and produce high-quality magazines with excellent distribution throughout the county.
