London Eye wins British Travel Award
09 Nov 2011
The 2011 British Travel Awards, which took place on 2 November, celebrated a line up of winning travel companies as voted for by the British public. This year more than 700,000 votes were cast – three times more than last year – making The British Travel Awards (BTA) the largest independent awards scheme in the UK.
The EDF Energy London Eye won a Bronze Award for Best UK Leisure Attraction.
Over one thousand of the UK travel industry’s movers and shakers packed Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, London to hear writer, broadcaster and actor, Gyles Brandreth announce the companies winning the prestigious BTA trophies.
BTA’s chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “From relatively small beginnings the British Travel Awards has gone from strength to strength and now in its sixth year the British public has cast an incredible number of votes for their favourite travel companies.
Next year we hope to pass the one million mark – the British Travel Awards are without doubt the largest independent consumer voted independent awards scheme in the UK.
The British Travel Awards’ the winning accolades are the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the business of travel for the UK consumer. All winners are to be congratulated on their achievement.”
Audited by Deloitte and the only travel industry accolade voted for by such a wide demographic of the UK’s travelling public, The British Travel Awards in association with Lloyds TSB Cardnet, serves to recognise all that is great about UK travel companies – according to the all important customer.
This year the British Travel Awards went Green teaming up with voluntary emissions reductions specialists Carbon Neutral Investments, to make the BTAs 2011 100% carbon neutral - covering all the power used at the event and the estimated travel to and from Battersea for the eleven hundred or so attending crowd.
