VisitCornwall has re-launched its website with a new Customise your visit tool: the first of its kind for a UK holiday destination website. The new Cornish website invites you to customise your trip to suit your party.


Visitors researching their holiday options on the website can now filter everything to reflect who they are, what they like and what time of year they are touring.


By clicking on the Customise your visit button at the top right-hand of the website visitors can filter content to suit them.


Visitors can choose to reveal if they are travelling with or without children, the ages of their children, any specific access needs they may have, if they are bringing their dog, what areas of Cornwall they are interested in, and the time of year they want to visit.

 

The website will then only present information that is relevant.

 

Lauren Hogan at VisitCornwall, said:  “The website has also been designed to meet the needs of visitors using mobile devices such as smart phones and iPads as there has been a fourfold increase in customers accessing the website using mobile technology.


“There are also plans to introduce geo-locating technology so that mobile users in Cornwall can plot themselves on the map to find out Things to do and What’s on near to where they are staying.”

 

 

The website also features a large, easy to use, interactive map that presents visitors with a quick way of finding their way around Cornwall and gives an understanding of how far places are away from each other.

 


The new website also has a video library with more than 20 'postcards', including fabulous aerial tours of Cornwall and features on things to do and places to visit.  

 

The website receives 1.5 million visitors a year, and features Cornish events, things to do,  food and drink, beaches, where to stay, interactive maps, videos and an 'I love Cornwall' blog.

 

The website has been shortlisted for the British Travel Awards 2012 ‘Best UK Visitor Guide Website’.

 

Here is a virtual fly-through of the website!
