Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is delighted to have been nominated in the Best Heritage Attraction category in the new Cornwall Today Awards. Cornwall Today magazine, which has developed the awards to celebrate all aspects of life in Cornwall, has invited people to cast their votes online now.

The nomination comes shortly after the museum won Gold in the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category at the Cornwall Tourism Awards in late 2012, and then scooped Bronze Small Visitor Attraction at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards in February 2013.

“We are very grateful to be nominated for this award alongside some of Cornwall’s best known and loved heritage attractions. These awards are a celebration of the very best of Cornwall and we are extremely proud to be recognised as a part of that.” Rachel Webster, Communications Officer, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum.
