A recent Visit Britain survey named the most-visited attractions across the UK, and four out the five most-visited tourist attractions in Cornwall are located within a short driving distance of our Fowey, Cornwall, hotel and restaurant.

The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Cardinham and Lanhydrock House and Garden were named in the top five of the most-visited attractions in Cornwall, for 2015, along with Tehidy Country Park in North West Cornwall.

The Eden Project was the most visited place last year, with a total of 960,029 surveyed visitors passing their doors to see the stunning biomes and discovering the wide selection of exotic plants housed at the Project. The attraction also received its best figures since 2011. The figures revealed in the survey are voluntary, which means the actual figures could be much higher.

Current and upcoming events at the Eden Project include the 'Invisible You' exhibition, the Macmillan Christmas Fair on November 17, gardening courses, a number of Halloween events throughout the half-term week, and ice-skating.

The Project also topped the list for UK tourist attractions that serve healthy food. Another survey employed parents as mystery shoppers to test the food served at various tourist attractions, and Eden received glowing reports on the food and dining experience.

Tehidy Park was the second most-visited attraction in Cornwall with 350,00 visitors; the Lost Gardens of Heligan had 295,219 visitors last year; Cardinham, located near Bodmin received 286,196, and Lanhydrock House and Garden rounded out the top five with 239,295 visitors.

Other Cornwall attractions surveyed by Visit Britain included Restormel Castle, Bodmin and Wenford Railway, Carnglaze Slate Caverns and Woodland Gardens, Trebah Garden, Tate St Ives and Tintagel Castle.

When staying at our Fowey, Cornwall hotel and restaurant in the coming weeks, be sure to visit any of the fantastic attractions which are close to the hotel.
