“Millions of jobs and local economies depend on tourism and this year’s awards are also a timely reminder of the determination, innovation and commitment of businesses across the country who have been working extremely hard to reopen, to welcome visitors back safely and to continue to provide a first-class experience.”

Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston added: "Not only does our tourism industry offer incredible experiences to those who holiday here, it supports millions of jobs up and down the country.
