The very best place for quality great days out in Cornwall...

About Cornwall

Cornwall's unique mixture of natural coastal and moorland beauty combined with some of the worlds best beaches and award winning attractions means that it cannot be beaten as a holiday destination.


We're run by Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions. CATA is a celebration of the best attractions that Cornwall has to offer, but over and above this, we exist to promote tourism in Cornwall in its own right.

As a destination, Cornwall has a great deal to offer visitors, and we’re proud to be a part of the wider holiday experience. Through promoting the wealth of things to do, we’re working to benefit the economy of Cornwall and the health of its tourism sector.

We recognise that most visitors are on a much-anticipated holiday and want to make it memorable. Many even have a nostalgic or personal connection with the region.

Regardless of whether it’s a first holiday or a fiftieth, we aim to celebrate with people, so that they ultimately leave feeling their time in Cornwall has been very special.

Our aim is to create quality experiences you’ll remember for years to come. Every member of the Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions is working with us to meet and raise industry standards.

We've been around for over 45 years, so you can be sure our attractions offer the best days out in Cornwall.


CATA started with seven members in 1974 and today there are almost 40 partner tourist attractions.

Our partner attractions span the entire length and breadth of Cornwall and we are delighted that so many attractions are able to meet our very high standards of quality, in accordance with our widely acknowledged and long established policy. Many have also obtained awards from the Cornwall Tourism Awards, South West Tourism Awards, Visit England, Green Tourism Business Awards Scheme, Travel Awards, Trip Advisor and many many more.

Whatever your taste, CATA tourist attractions offer the very best in action, wildlife, cultural and heritage attractions. From Cornwall's ancient past and stunning natural beauty to new and innovative fun experiences, there are lots of things to do in Cornwall

We are committed to ensuring that all visitors to our attractions will experience quality in terms of content, service and value for money. Come and see for yourself!
