About Us

"The Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions"

You may be more familiar with our marketing brand "Best Days Out Cornwall" which has an on-line presence for visitors planning a trip to Cornwall and a printed guide that is widely distributed throughout the county. Our guide targets visitors who have arrived in Cornwall and are looking for "great places to visit".

We are a friendly group of 40 quality attractions in Cornwall who are determined to:-

  • Raise and maintain the standards of member attractions for the benefit of holidaymakers, the economy of Cornwall and the members themselves.
  • Represent the interests of the tourist attraction industry and to assist individual members through collective action.
  • Facilitate, as agents, the co-operative promotion of member attractions.

In short, for over 40 years, the association has been working to improve the quality of the visitor experience in Cornwall. CATA members represent the highest standards of quality, in accordance with our widely acknowledged and long established policy and strict membership accreditation scheme.
