It’s been a week since the very best businesses from across Bath, Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, and the Isles of Scilly gathered at Sandy Park in Exeter for the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2021/22.
The event was the first time since February 2020 that the region’s tourism awards have been able to return to their face-to-face format, with a celebratory dinner in April enjoyed by over 300 winners, supporters, and tourism leaders.
All forms of hospitality business were amongst the winners; with cafes, pubs, cookery schools and sailing schools all celebrating alongside attractions, camping and glamping sites, holiday parks, B&Bs, cottages and hotels. Many have also been nominated to represent the South West in the national VisitEngland awards later in the year.
Hit play on the video to hear from the awards’ headline sponsors, some of the excited award winners and finalists, as well as the awards’ organisers and guest presenters.
