Simon Calder to host Beautiful South Tourism Awards 2019

For tourism businesses across the South East the wait is over. The finalists in the 2019/20 Beautiful South Awards have been chosen.

This year saw a near record number of entries (170) in 23 categories from all parts of the region - 40% more than last year. They were shortlisted from their entry forms and mystery shopped by expert independent judges. Today 80 finalists were announced along with 24 businesses whose achievements were recognised with commended certificates. They will learn whether they are celebrating a gold, silver or bronze award at the prestigious awards ceremony at the Grand Brighton, on the 10th December, hosted by Simon Calder, travel journalist and broadcaster.

Winners in matching Visit England categories will be invited to represent the South East in the National VisitEngland Awards which take place early in 2020.
