Southern Wales Tourism Nominated for Top Award

Group Leisure AwardWe never tire of telling you how wonderful Wales is but I hope you don't mind if we just take a moment to tell you how wonderful we are as we have been been nominated for a prestigious industry award. 

We were shortlisted in the Best Tourist Board category at the 2011 Group Leisure Awards, an accolade which recognises excellence throughout the group travel industry.

Although we were disappointed not to have come first, to be named as one of the Top 4 Tourist Boards in the country is still a superb achievement.  It certainly cements our reputation as one of the best destinations for groups in the UK.

We don't know who nominated or voted for us but if it was you we'd like to say a very big thank you.  We're extremely grateful that you took the time to do so. 

We also want to thank all the local tourism providers in this area whom we have worked with over the years which has helped us promote and encourage travel to Southern Wales.
