Northumberland Needs You!

There is just over a week left to vote for Northumberland in the 2019 British Travel Awards.

Once again the county is nominated in the category for Best Destination/County of the Year. 

After chasing the title for four years from Cornwall, the county finally picked up the GOLD at last year’s awards.

Now Northumberland County Council and Northumberland Tourism is asking everyone who loves the county to vote before the deadline on September 30.

The British Travel Awards are considered the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the travel industry.

The winner of the prestigious award will be announced on November 27 at an event in London.

Cllr Cath Homer, cabinet member for Culture, Arts, Leisure and Tourism said: “Winning the award last year was an unbelievable achievement for the whole county and demonstrated the hardwork and dedication of everyone involved in the tourism industry.

“The award has been a real game changer for the county with a whole host of other accolades for Northumberland coming off the back of it. Our latest tourism figures show that Northumberland continues to be a destination of choice, employing thousands of people, and we want to keep it that way.

“We know how proud our residents are of our county, and we need everyone to get behind us and vote, to make sure Northumberland retains its rightful crown as the UK’s best destination.”

The deadline for voting is September 30, 2019.
