Let us not downplay Helston though. There is much to find appeal in this historic market town. It boasts the only military base of note in the County, one of the most popular theme parks in the region as well as a diverse local economy. The schools compare favourably in terms of performance, and it boasts on its doorstep an attractive coastal geography second to none. It is unsurprising therefore that in recent years canny corporates like Sainsbury’s, Tesco’s, Whitbread’s and latterly Premier Inn and Weatherspoon’s have all invested heavily to provide better amenity to the area. They clearly know something which the rest of us should take notice of?
