How can you and your business get involved?

We are keen to work with as many tourism or consumer-facing businesses to promote the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. So that you have the resources necessary to do so, we have developed a range of tools to assist you in promoting this globally important asset, enhance your visitors' experience and keep them coming back to you, year on year.

‘Familiarisation’ trips 

We frequently run series of ‘familiarisation’ trips, held in one of the ten areas local to you that together comprise the World Heritage Site. The trips are free guided tours of key mining attractions and the surrounding wider mining landscapes. Keep an eye out on our News page for new dates.

WHS 'Champions'

We also run regular training sessions for any businesses wanting to find out more about Cornwall's fascinating mining heritage. Our 'Champions' programme is run by CoaST, to help support local tourism businesses to promote the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site to their visitors. The training is completely free of charge and training sessions are run regularly throughout the year. If you would like to become a 'Champion' please contact Silvia Lowe (silvia.lowe@cornwall.gov.uk / 01872 322767). Alternatively, to meet our Champions, click here.

 

***New*** South West Outdoor Map Widget

In order to help visitors explore the South West's beautiful countryside, a free online map 'widget' is now available. The scenery of the South West is the most important reason for visitors coming to this beautiful region. 90% of us now use the web to plan our holidays and over 80% of visitors to the South West take part in a countryside activity.

The Cornish Mining Widget

The widget is an online resource for any tourism businesses based in Cornwall or west Devon. It showcases your local area as well as highlighting activities for visitors during their stay. This enables your website users to find relevant local information about the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site on your website.  For information on embedding the widget, visit our Cornish Mining Widget page.

 

One-to-One Meetings

If you are unable to attend a ‘familiarisation’ trip, a member of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site team would be happy to visit you and discuss how you can get involved. To arrange a meeting, or for any other enquiries, contact Silvia Lowe on 01872 322767 / silvia.lowe@cornwall.gov.uk
