South West region shines at VisitEngland tourism awards

VisitEngland Tourism Awards give out plaudits to the best in the country, and now it appears as if South West is indeed the winning region as had been suspected. The selection process was rigorous and took quite some time, but the officials have now announced the final results which place the region on top of all the others for tourism and businesses doing what must be done to bring in more visitors from overseas.

There were ten finalists in all and South West had to compete with some strong entries as the finalists were presented to a panel of judges. While the selection is done, the award will be presented officially at the end of May. This event is sponsored by VisitEngland, a tourism company that does these kinds of awards.

Pentillie Castle is a B&B in Cornwall and they will pick up the Gold, while Bath’s Bath sees itself awarded the award for Sustainable Tourism. In all, several businesses in the region share in the glory from this particular company’s own awards ceremony. Everything is being done in line with what the tourism board thinks is best to attract more tourism to the region.

Robin Barker is from the organisers group and he says that South West earned its place in history, doing things for those who visit the region that no one else has been willing to do, giving himself 110%, and being there when no one else would. He will be proud to present some of these awards himself to the many shops and companies that share in this.
