St Paul’s Cathedral recognised in Group Travel Awards

St Paul’s Cathedral has collected the runner-up award for best UK short visit in the the Group Travel Awards 2012.
The awards ceremony was held last Friday, 15 June at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London.

The category in which St Paul's was recognised, ‘Best attraction for group visits: short visit’ is aimed at attractions and destinations which can be enjoyed in less than two hours.
St Paul’s Marketing Manager Matthew Taylor said: "It is an honour to be voted as one of the best visitor destinations at the 2012 Group Travel Awards. It is a highly valued endorsement from the many satisfied group organisers who are bringing their groups to St Paul’s Cathedral."
"This award also serves as recognition from the group travel industry of successful improvements made at the cathedral to our welcome for visitors and facilities provided to groups. We thank all the award voters and assure them that we remain committed to working closely with the group travel industry in the future.”
Coming second only to the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral was placed ahead of other shortlisted attractions including the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth; The Household Calvary Museum; The Houses of Parliament; West Somerset Railway and Windsor Castle.
The Group Travel Awards are voted for by the readers of Group Travel Organiser magazine and have earned an enviable reputation as the most prestigious event serving the group travel market. They reflect a highly valued endorsement from customers in this most important market sector.
