Four 22/23 Beautiful South Tourism Awards winners are through to the VisitEngland finals

The route into VisitEngland National Awards for Excellence is via the Beautiful South Tourism Awards. The categories that are run on a South East and national level are unsung hero, pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as accommodation, business events venue, attractions and experiences. As well as awards for new tourism business, accessible and inclusive, and ethical, responsible and sustainable tourism business. Of the 48 VisitEngland finalists who will go forward to compete for the tourism industry’s national awards, four businesses were entrants from the 2022/23 Beautiful South Tourism Awards. They will have to wait until the national awards ceremony on 7 June at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, to find out if they win Gold, Silver or Bronze Fran Downton, Tourism South East, said “ We are thrilled to see the great quality from the South East shining through to compete at a national level. We couldn’t be prouder of our member organisations, they are officially amongst England's finest. We wish them the very best of luck as we head towards the awards event”. Marie, an Unsung Hero finalist, from Whitchurch Silk Mill said “Such exciting news, I just can’t believe it. I never expected to be a national finalist and it is really touching to be recognised in this way”. Heather Carter, Visitor Attraction finalist, from Blenheim Palace, said: "To be among such an impressive shortlist of visitor attractions is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our fabulous team. Simply to be a finalist is wonderful recognition for everyone here at ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’.” Entries for the Beautiful South Awards must be submitted online by midnight on Sunday 18 June.
