Tourists return while Cornwall welcomes visitors, pictured

On the day that saw the biggest easing of restrictions since the blockade began, Cornwall welcomed visitors

After the glorious summer enjoyed by Cornwall in the last three months of the blockade, today (Saturday 4th July) the duchy welcomed visitors to a real Cornish honeymoon.

Nicknamed “Super Saturday”, today has seen the greatest easing of restrictions since the blockade began, with the reduction of social distances to one meter, the reopening of pubs and hairdressers and, especially for Cornwall, people can now come here on vacation.

With many Cornish companies relying so heavily on tourism, the reopening of the holiday industry has been welcomed by many. However, there were also doubts that Cornwall could see up to 80,000 tourists visiting this weekend, with hotels, campsites, attractions, pubs and restaurants all able to open for the first time since the blockade began.

If there are indeed 80,000 visitors on the road to Cornwall, they have not yet arrived, because the roads, beaches and city centers have been quieter than expected today.

Most likely, it was the return of the Cornish mizzle, which discouraged some people, making Super Saturday more of a standard Cornish Saturday and certainly more manageable.
