Torquay has been voted top seaside destination in England in the 2015 Travellers’ Choice Awards, announced by TripAdvisor this week, the world’s largest travel site with Torquay ranked 4th overall.
Carolyn Custerson, Chief Executive of the English Riviera Tourism Company (ERTC) said, “Against stiff competition including the increasing popularity of city destinations it is absolutely fantastic to see Torquay listed by Trip Advisor in the 2015 Traveller’s Choice Awards as the top seaside destination in England and the 4th top UK destination overall. The positive publicity generated by these awards is extremely powerful and definitely something that money can’t buy. The timing of this award is superb coinciding with the peak booking period for forward summer bookings. The ERTC Marketing Team will be working to maximize marketing opportunities working with the industry to tell as many people as possible about this latest award for the English Riviera.
London came 1st, Edinburgh 2nd, Llandudno 3rd, Torquay 4th, Liverpool 5th, Blackpool 6th, Belfast 7th, York 8th, Keswick 9th and Glasgow 10th. For the second year running Torquay has been rated the top seaside destination in England which is a fantastic achievement and an incredibly powerful message on which to keep marketing the English Riviera brand worldwide.”
Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, attractions and restaurants in destinations worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
