The awards, sponsored by Visit Essex and organised by Archant, are designed to highlight the very best of Essex tourism and raise the profile of the industry across the county. Factors taken into account include the quality of service on offer to visitors, the visitor experience and value for money. In addition commitment to staff training and development, the environment and accessibility are also key issues. We congratulate all the winners. Additional information on this classification scheme is available from Visit Essex.
