Leisure

At Affinity, our focus is on the thousands of smaller operations that are at the centre of the UK’s leisure activities. From the seafront arcades and family entertainment centres, to the children’s farms, visitor attractions and “brown-sign” sites that attract crowds up and down the country, we provide comprehensive cover across all associated risks.

We work with specialist brokers in the sector, providing products for both individual companies as well as associations and their members within the leisure industry.

Our policies tackle a wide range of sector-specific risks. That means we can offer cover for exposures as diverse as potential on-site damage caused by emergency services vehicles or the significant increase in wines and spirits stored at premises during the festive period or in the run-up to public holidays.
