Tourism is vital to the economy of Cornwall and the wider South West and works hand in hand with a wide range of sectors including farming, transport, retail, sport, museums and the arts. Tourism is 25%-28% of gross value added of Cornwall, and the visitor economy could be as much as £2.4 billion over the year.
