Group Leisure & Travel Awards: recognising the best for 20 years

The Group Leisure & Travel Awards recognise the best providers, attractions and destinations for groups, as voted for by readers of Group Leisure & Travel magazine.

Since the first awards ceremony back in 1997, we've asked group travel organisers from across the country to tell us who, where and what is best across 21 categories, including Best UK Attraction, Best Theatre Production and Best Group Tour Operator. It also includes the highly prestigious Group Travel Organiser of the Year Award.

The results are announced each October. The 2017 awards ceremony took place on Wednesday 11th October at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. It was the 20th Group Leisure & Travel Awards and an extra special celebration.

It's without doubt, the biggest and most important night in group travel each year, and a fantastic event for networking, entertaining, rewarding... and of course celebrating.

It includes everything from Best UK Attraction to Best Dining Experience for groups, and recognises the people who make it all possible, the group travel organisers.
