A Year in Brief 2023-2024

Visit Tamar Valley works in partnership with the Tamar Valley National Landscape to deliver The Tamara Landscape Partnership Scheme’s (TLP) Come Visit Stay Awhile project.  TLP is a 5-year project with 10 key focuses and its aim is to enhance the Tamar Valley for both residents and visitors alike.

Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Funding, funds have been allocated to:
– Further developing a fully resourced-destination website
– Proactively marketing the Tamar Valley as a place to visit
– Promoting hospitality and tourism businesses in the area
– Creating opportunities for local people to become involved in the industry
– Upskilling local businesses through workshops and training
– Creating a dedicated B2B support hub for local business owners
– And generating a tangible positive impact on the local economy as a whole
Visit Tamar Valley is now in the very early stages of delivering its second full project year. We’ve created this graphic to summarise year one and provide some insight into how funding has been spent. With our second year underway the focus will be on further developing green tourism initiatives, and growing group travel to the Tamar Valley for the benefit of all tourism and hospitality businesses in the Tamar Valley and bordering areas.
