Scilly Named Best UK Destination In Family Traveller Awards
Scilly has been named the UK’s Best Domestic Destination in this year’s Family Traveller Magazine Awards.
The islands took first place against stiff competition from a shortlist of well-known and much larger destinations such as the Isle of Wight, Cornwall, Northumberland, Brighton and the Cairngorms.
The winner was chosen by a combination of an online vote and the opinions of a panel of judges, including TV presenter and journalist Mariella Frostrup, adventurer and travel writer Simon Reeve and Times travel editor, Jane Knight.
Islands’ Partnership Executive Director, David Jackson, attended the awards ceremony at the top of the Shard in London’s this evening.
After winning the award, he tweeted that he was “delighted” that Scilly has been declared the winner and thanked everyone who voted for us.
