SW Secures Big Slice of £40m Discover England Fund

Great news for the South West! The largest chunk of the Discover England Fund yet has been awarded to the promoters of England’s GREAT South West Peninsula.

The Fund was designed to promote England to overseas visitors, and the successful bid for £300k was made by the South West Peninsula Overseas Partnership, a consortium led by Visit Cornwall, with partners Visit Devon, The Islands Partnership (Isles of Scilly), Visit Somerset and Visit Dorset. The project will deliver targeted experiences including accommodation for family and friendship groups from Australia and the USA.

Congratulations to all involved – especially to our colleagues in Visit Devon: ‘Proper job!’
