October 2014: in a radical change in direction, Sphinx have decided to dedicate extra resource into the consultancy side of our operation. Starting in Cornwall and the southwest of England, Sphinx will be seeking to apply many of the lessons learned globally to the UK domestic travel & tourism product. Whilst this part of England has in the past (and still does) enjoy a marked level of success, it is clear that the product is not all that it could be. We will, with the assistance and co-operation of many leading organisations, seek to make big improvements to all aspects of visiting the southwest, be it accommodation, activities, environment and natural surroundings and customer service. We want people to think Cornwall first when planning their next holiday.

Take a look at PROJECT CORNWALL for greater insight into our plans.

    Nevada in a month of Sundays?
    Yes, Spain does have its own skiing, but how come not more Brits are taking "Sea & Ski" breaks so close to the Med. Does it Costa too much? This turns out to be a real eye-opener as we ski in the sun.
