Eden Project helps to strengthen tourism from China
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
A group of visitors from China have visited Cornwall recently, heading to the Eden Project as part of an initiative to increase tourism to the UK from their country.
A party of 29 travel agents came to look around the biomes in a quick visit to the south of England, which was hosted by VisitBritain. Eden is a member of the GREAT China Welcome programme, which was introduced by VisitBritain in 2014, in order to help Britain become the most welcoming destination in Europe for Chinese visitors.
Eden signed an agreement last month to create a new £100 million centre in China, in what would be its first big overseas building venture, with another one proposed for Christchurch in New Zealand.
Chinese visitors currently make up 20 per cent of the overseas tourists who come to Cornwall to visit the Eden Project, although South West England is still currently not on the radar of many visitors. This is why projects between Eden and tourism sectors are trying to draw more attention to the beauty of the centre, as well as Cornwall as a whole.
The Eden Project is just one of many great attractions close to our hotel in Fowey, so why not book yourself a room and come and see the joys of Cornwall for yourself?
