Visit England Awards for Excellence

The Visit England awards have been running for 23 years and celebrate the outstanding tourism and tourism support businesses. 500 of the cream of England’s tourism sampled the best of English cuisine and toasted the success of the finalists with the finest English wines.

The awards were presented by Lady Cobham and were attended by the good and the great of the tourism industry including the Duke of Marlborough who was presented with a lifetime achievement.

We had fantastic feedback from the event:

“I wanted to write and thank you all for the wonderful support you and your colleagues have given us from day one of this project.

"We could not have wished for a more professional, friendly and skilled team to work with. It has been a real pleasure to work with you (which is not something we can say about all venues!) The Award Ceremony was the culmination of a year's work and it was important to us to have a memorable and enjoyable ceremony. Everything looked amazing and the food including delivery was impeccable but it was your attention to detail, your can do attitude which particularly impressed me.

"Your coolness and flexibility in handling the reception which was challenging was excellent. I found your serving staff to be charming friendly and very efficient. You make a fantastic team and should be proud of your achievement. You did Leicester proud”
