Cornwall Gets A Tourism Boost

Cornwall could be about to tap into a whole new holiday market.

That from tourism bosses as the Lonely Planet Guide puts the Duchy and Devon in the top three destinations in Europe.

Businesses say they are already feeling positive about this summer for bonus bookings.

It is as they continue to bounce back from the storms.

Malcolm Bell from Visit Cornwall calls it an extra string to the bow, he said: "When you get the Lonely Planet saying third best place, that really is the endorsement you need, and it gets us the profile, that external endorsement is incredibly valuable to new visitors, or to those who have been thinking about it for a while but have never got round to doing it.

"Last week I was sitting there with my coffee near serpentine in London, listening to an American tell a Canadian that if they were in England they better make sure they get down as far as Cornwall, it's that endorsement really, it's getting the message out there to markets we can't reach."
