Allhallows Haven Holiday Park on the Hoo Peninsula undergoes major refurbishment

A holiday camp has undergone a major revamp to include an expanded bar area for live entertainment.

The investment by Haven, which runs the site in Allhallows on the Hoo Peninsula, near Rochester, has also led to more than 50 job opportunities.

It's all part of a £170 million investment by the UK holiday operator across its 41 parks driven by a demand for staycations.

The new Marina Bar and Lounge is now open, seating up to 1,200 people - triple the number of the previous venue.

Thanks to a range of in-built shutters it can be divided into several smaller areas allowing space to watch live sport on multiple big screens or, alternatively, it can be opened up to create a large room for evening entertainment and functions

The decked terrace has been designed to take advantage of the park's estuary views and there's the Wondershop to pick up souvenirs.

Other food and drink developments added last year include the new Seaside Treats and Cooks Fish & Chips restaurants.

Park bosses have announced seasonal and permanent roles are also on offer across the board from activities and leisure to catering, front-of-house and cleaners.

Simon Palethorpe, Haven managing director, said: "This is positive news for Kent as the investments we are making as part of our Parks of the Future project will enhance our offering to UK holidaymakers wanting to visit Allhallows.

"Importantly, it will also bring greater employment opportunities and significant economic benefit to the local communities within which we proudly operate."

Acquired by Blackstone in 2021, Haven has already invested more than £230 million in sites in 2021 and 2022 with a commitment to upgrading and modernising all destinations.
