Looe wins Silver in BTA

BTA Looe Silver AwardLooe has just won ‘Silver’ in the British Travel Awards for category ‘Best UK Coastal Resort’. Gold was awarded to Bournemouth!

A record breaking 1,268,458 votes were counted across all 72 categories with Cornwall winning four awards in total – Looe being one of them.

Cornwall itself was awarded the ‘Best UK Holiday Region’ for the fifth year in a row with the Eden Project winning ‘Best UK Leisure Attraction’ for a third year in a row. The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth come second in the ‘Best UK Heritage Attraction’ category.

A well deserved award for Looe

I always find it amazing how seldom south east Cornwall is featured on the Cornwall tourism map, especially when it comes to food, beaches and art.

We have plenty of stunning scenery and a plethora of award winning restaurants, yet we are the forgotten cousin to the golden girl that is, west Cornwall. Hopefully this award will point Visit Cornwall back in our direction… Looe is here… no-no, over here… just incase you had forgotten!

Well done to all concerned

Still, here we are… Silver in the ‘Best UK Coastal Resort’ category out of all the UK… fantastic… well done everyone involved. Keep up the good work and keep spreading the word.

Perhaps we can get Gold next year 🙂
