WATCH: Bumper Easter for Cornwall
1:49pm 21st April 2017
Cornwall has seen an £80 million pounds' boost thanks to a bumper Easter.
Tourism bosses say around 180,000 people descended on the Duchy over the school holiday.
Businesses are now expecting a strong summer as the roadworks on the A30 at Temple are due to finish.
Malcolm Bell from Visit Cornwall says that will help ease traffic.
He told Pirate FM: "The A30 is a bit of a challenge, we would have loved to have seen it open this Easter, but I think everyone going through it, now that it is in its final stages and although I think everyone would have been frustrated to be caught up in the traffic, they know it is going to be gone by the time the school holidays start.
"I think now comes the challenge of making sure we get plenty of business over summer, over the six-week holiday now the school holiday ban is in place, but on the first of May we are going to announce the start of Cornish summer time, that May and June are two of the best months to be in Cornwall."
Becky Rapson, from Newquay View Resort, said: "Bookings have been really high with the sun we have already had, so we're expecting lots of people to get in their cars and bring their tents.
"Booking revenue's up by a third this year, we're noticing a trend of people staying in the country this year.
"It could be something to do with the weaker pound, and also security concerns, so people are more and more staying at home for the holidays.
She also adds that they have seen a jump in the number or holiday homes being sold, thanks to the good weather.
