Cornwall Steals the Show at British Travel Awards

Cornwall has been revealed as the ultimate all-round visitor destination in the British Travel Awards 2012 by dominating the winners roll and claiming the coveted top spot for everything from overall county to attraction, town and website.

For the fourth consecutive year Cornwall has been crowned Best Holiday County and in an equally impressive feat St Ives has scooped Best Coastal Town for the third time.

Cornwall’s strengths in online marketing and innovation have also been applauded with taking the title of Best Visitor Guide Website.

Meanwhile, double glory has been bestowed on Cornwall’s attractions with the Eden Project claiming Gold for Best Leisure Attraction for the second year running, whilst the Bronze trophy for Best Heritage Attraction went to the Minack Theatre.

To complete the honours that went in Cornwall’s favour Fal River took Bronze for Best UK Coastal Town and Parkdean Holidays which has 24 holiday parks across the UK with 8 in Cornwall, claimed Silver for Best UK Holiday Park Operator.

Malcolm Bell, Head of VisitCornwall, the Cornwall Development Company tourism service, delights: “As a clear winner, no other destination rivalled Cornwall’s enviable success which shows a unique diversity and unwavering quality across the industry. Cornwall excels in partnership working and this impressive feat is a collective effort which reflects on the whole industry. Congratulations to Cornish tourism.”
