TORQUAY NAMED TOP UK DESTINATION FOR THE 2ND YEAR RUNNING!

TripAdvisor has again named Torquay in their Travellers' Choice Top 10 Destinations in the United Kingdom.

TripAdvisor today announced the winners of its 2013 Travellers' Choice Destinations Awards, honouring the top destinations in the world as decided by millions of travellers. It's great news again for Torquay, making the top ten for the second year running.

Angus Struthers, TripAdvisor spokesperson commented: "These awards honour the world's best destinations as decided by those judges that really matter, travellers themselves. With the choice of so many beautiful destinations in the UK, it's fantastic that travellers have named Torquay among the UK's very best."

Carolyn Custerson, Chief Executive, English Riviera Tourism Company (ERTC) said, 'This is absolutely fantastic news for the English Riviera, to have got into the Top 10 destinations two years running and with the power of all the positive PR coverage that this news will bring, we should all be in for a cracking summer; well done Torquay."

The English Riviera has a growing reputation as a year round destination of choice with lots to do and see complemented by a warm English Riviera welcome. Hundreds of events and festivals are now listed on the interactive What's On Calendar of the award-winning destination website www.englishriviera.co.uk managed by the ERTC.

In addition, the nationally endorsed Welcome English Riviera training course is proving very popular, providing excellent customer care training as well as indepth knowledge about the English Riviera and its key selling points. There is a regular stream of positive stories to the press by the ERTC's PR team and the benefits of the iPhone app, Twitter, Facebook and English Riviera blog specially designed for journalists are all having a good effect.
