HEARTLANDS REACHES 100,000 VISITORS
1 August 2012
Cornwall’s Heartlands project was opened three months ago and was visited by Charles and Camilla last month. Good news concerning the attraction continues to fall upon the project after it announced this week that it has received 100,000 visitors.
The free attraction was built in Pool on derelict mine land, incorporating Cornwall’s 400 year mining heritage. Old neglected buildings have been restored and are now home to World Heritage Site exhibitions, botanical gardens, an adventure playground and an art and craft studio amongst other things, altogether making it a fantastic free day out.
Officials from the Heartlands Trust are delighted with these figures, saying that the first few months have been “unbelievable” and that interest in the site has been phenomenal. They are hoping that this will continue.
These promising figures mean that the Heartlands attraction in Cornwall will hopefully be one of South Cornwall’s great places to visit whilst staying in luxury cottages Cornwall.
