Continuum Attractions brings stories alive for visitors and continues to create and manage diverse and market-defining visitor attractions across the country. Starting in 1984 with the Jorvik Centre in York, Heritage Projects Ltd was born, setting the standard in creating visitor attractions commensurate with the needs, interests and desires of the evolving visitor market. More successful attractions were created in 1988 with The Canterbury Tales and The Oxford Story, followed by The White Cliffs Experience in partnership with Dover County Council, and Enjoy a Day at the Wells in Royal Tunbridge Wells. In 2000, the company was renamed the Continuum Group, eventually to evolve into Continuum Attractions, with the creation of The International Centre for Life in Newcastle under its belt. From 2003 to 2017, other attractions benefiting from Continuum’s expertise included The Real Mary King’s Close in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, Emirates Spinnaker Tower in partnership with Portsmouth City Council, Oxford Castle Unlocked in conjunction with Oxford Preservation Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Museum of Kent Life with Maidstone Borough Council, The Crystal with Siemens in London, York’s Chocolate Story, Emirates Air Line Cable Car in London, and in partnership with ITV, Coronation Street The Tour in Manchester and Emmerdale Village Tour and Emmerdale Studio Experience in Leeds, the Royal Mint Experience in London and the Greenwood Forest Park in Wales, plus other tailored consultancy projects.
At Continuum, we believe the best memories come from great storytelling delivered well; we have found that people-to-people engagement delivers this best of all. Our well-versed team of facilitators and interpretation specialists interact and engage with the visitor to make the experience both personal and memorable.
