Many of the UK’s top travel companies attended the TravelMole 2012 UK Awards in London this week to celebrate their ninth year. The Awards recognise the best online content in the travel and tourism industry.
The event took place at DoubleTree by Hilton Tower of London and after the winners were announced, it was off to The Windmill Theatre for a night of music and partying with tribute group The Sounds of the Supremes.
The popular VisitCornwall website won Best Tourist Board Website. Cornwall is one of the top “holiday at home” favourites with British timeshare owners, with a number of resorts in the region, including two Club La Costa Resorts – Hustyns and Trenython Manor.
