TOURISM CHIEFS FROM ABROAD FLY IN TO GET TIPS FROM CORNWALL
22 March 2012
As if to underline Cornwall’s status as a leading international tourist destination, tourism chiefs from Iceland and Estonia have flown in to the county in order to try and glean tourism tips from the flourishing sector.
Taking in the Eden Project, Healey’s Cider Farm and a guide of Truro’s historic streets by Cornish bard Councillor Bert Biscoe before heading to St Ives, the travelling party certainly got a fair share of what is brilliant about Cornwall.
Head of VisitCornwall Malcom Bell believes the trip shows just how respected the region is across the world and how their unique approach is helping them.
He said: “Cornwall is becoming well known across Europe for its food and renewable energy. Estonia has benefited from cheap flights, and is a popular destination for stag parties, but they want to develop their countryside and spread the benefits of tourism. Cornwall has done well by building on its natural heritage and culture. We are regarded as innovators.”
Come and see for yourself just why the county has become one of the world’s leading tourist attractions and enjoy a stay in some 5 star accommodation in Cornwall.
