Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions

Cornwall Association of Tourist Attractions (CATA) was formed in 1974 to create and promote top-quality visitor experiences in the region. Today, the association comprises 40 of the best attractions in Cornwall, with a supportive network encouraging knowledge sharing and collective action.
