Prime Minister urging more people to visit the stunning South West
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
David Cameron is known for his affection for holidaying in the South West, Cornwall in particular, and he visits every year with his family. Cornwall receives more than 14 million day trips every year, and hundreds of thousands of international visitors too.
The Prime Minister has said he wants more people from the UK and those visiting from abroad to enjoy the 'wonders' of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, naming the South West as one of the jewels in Great Britain's crown.
He has expressed his love for this part of England, naming the beaches, coastal walks and the creative projects that take place in the county just a part of the county's draw.
Around half the visitors to the UK only visit London. Steps are now being put in place by the Government to make this change so tourism can reach all across the UK. Investments into the infrastructure means road and railway routes will be made easier to get out of London.
There are also plans to make projects in and around Cornwall long term, so tourism can be perpetuated all year 'round. Though summer takes the highest amount of visitors, it is important to keep the county popular during the winter months, which will help the economy.
So why not follow in Cameron's footsteps by take a holiday or short break and see the stunning sights of Cornwall this year. The Cormorant is one of the best Cornwall hotels to choose from, offering luxury rooms and also an award winning restaurant.
