The bank holiday getaway looms for Cornwall.

Some are expecting this weekend to be the busiest of the year so far.

Thousands are expected to descend on the Duchy.

It is after the good weather over Easter.

Nigel Burnette from Trebah Gardens near Falmouth is hoping it heralds the start of another great summer, he said: "Last year was a much needed and necessary boost to trade for many business, it was our most profitable year since we opened to the public 21 years ago, I'm just hopeful we can and others can enjoy another strong trading year.

"Visitor numbers last year were their highest since 2006, obviously as an outside attraction we do gain some benefits from good weather, and undoubtedly it gives everyone a feel good factor and a legacy for the next year."
