Eastbourne has been voted as a finalist in the 2017 Group Travel Awards under the category “Best UK Destination for Groups”.
Eastbourne was nominated for the award by the readers of GTO magazine, competing against the likes of London and Liverpool for the prize.
The annual award celebrates the best suppliers to the group travel industry with GTO magazine’s readers voting for destinations who offer a prize-winning service from the pre-visit information and transport, to the accommodation and attractions on offer.
Eastbourne Borough Council Director of Tourism and Enterprise, Phil Evans said, “It is a huge success for Eastbourne to be nominated for this award, and regarded as popular with groups as some of the UK’s biggest cities including London, Liverpool and Manchester.
“Eastbourne’s tourism industry works extremely hard to offer a sensational service and days out that aim to deliver a memorable break that sees visitors returning year after year.”
