St Paul’s scoops silver as over 600,000 votes are cast in British Travel Awards

St Paul’s Cathedral can lay claim to being the most popular heritage attraction in England after winning a silver award at the British Travel Awards 2012.

At an awards dinner held in London (1 November), St Paul’s was placed only behind Edinburgh Castle in the best UK Heritage Attraction category.

More than one million people interacted with the decision-making process, and in total, 608,509 votes were cast across all the categories.

British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: "The awards were created to reward travel companies, with the winning accolade being the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the business of travel for the UK consumer. St Paul’s Cathedral is to be congratulated on their achievement.”

Companies were nominated by the public before being voted for by the British consumer, including readers of The Times, Sunday Times, the Sun and the Sunday Sun; listeners of Global Radio stations, including LBC; and readers of the British Travel Awards magazine Check-In.
