By registering with the Network your business name, address and website will automatically be listed on the ‘Places To Go‘ map.
However, this map is not just so visitors can find you. Think of the map as the place where the Network begins!
Use it to find, and be found by, Network Members. Businesses on the map are aligned to the principles of responsible, respectful and sustainable tourism and looking for ways to work together with other Network members to plan for and manage the impact of visitors on the Tin Coast.

We hope that by businesses and organisations planning and promoting events that compliment each other and happen all year round we will limit adding to our visitor numbers in the summer and encourage more out of season audiences – taking the pressure off the community but keeping our economy going at the same time.
To get listed on our ‘Things To Do’ page follow the ‘SUBMIT AN EVENT’ instructions on Cornwall 365 What’s On website.
Listing your event is FREE.
What appears on Cornwall 365’s website under the Tin Coast area will then appear on our ‘Things To Do’ page.
By using the digital technology from their website to create the event listing on this website we can promote what you are doing locally and across Cornwall. And because Cornwall 365 work with Visit Cornwall too, you will also see your event find its way onto Visit Cornwall’s What’s On pages too.
It also means we aren’t duplicating in effort or costs, and it takes the worry away from us when it comes to the technology that makes this genius thing happen!
The story behind our ‘Local Life’ Blog
To help visitors to the Tin Coast understand what the place means to the people who live and work here, we would like to share with them your local guides and stories about the Tin Coast told in your words.
Inspired by Visit Stockholm’s ‘Locals Recommend’ section of their website which is made up of content offering visitors new ways to explore Stockholm with tips and personal guides – our ‘Local Life’ Blog is our place for us to do the same, bringing the Tin Coast alive with real, local stories and conversations that make the area an easy place to find, visit and explore.
Our blog content is planned to encourage people to visit all year round with a specific focus on off peak seasons and that is sensitive to and reflective of the people and place – and of course, keeping some insider tips for ourselves!
Having a Local Life Blog means we can talk more about our community at the same time as giving our visitors more itinerary ideas and recommendations as well as offering a wide range of topics – promoting businesses and, overtime, ensuring we have something of interest for everyone.
And if we keep to our Visitor Charter values and use our writing tips from our brand resources then we can keep ensuring that our messaging is place sensitive, respectful and beneficial to our community.
