The ultimate Cornwall bucket list

As only 58% of children have ever tried a Cornish pasty, we have released the “Ultimate Bucket List for Visitors to Cornwall”. This also follows the recent news that the county has been granted minority status and the list is a celebration of all things Cornwall.

Attractions such as the Minack Theatre, The Barbara Hepworth Museum and The Eden Project are included as well as more historical treasures such as The Count House and Tintagel Castle. Alongside the attractions, traditional Cornish cuisine features heavily with eating a cream tea, sampling stargazy pie and of course, devouring a humble Cornish pasty also making the list.

With the weather forecast looking bright and a record-breaking summer being anticipated, We have also found that visitor numbers to the site have increased by 33% over the last month compared to the same period last year and the number of searches for Cornwall holidays is also up by almost 15% compared to 2013, showing that Cornwall remains a popular destination for people taking holidays in the UK.

We were shocked to hear the statistics that only 58% of children had tried a Cornish pasty and felt that this needed to be rectified. Cornwall’s heritage is part of its charm and this bucket list as a way to inform people of all that Cornwall offers. Hopefully, the weather in 2018 encourages people to tick off as many as possible.
