London & Partners was honoured to collect the 2012 Group Travel Award for Best UK Destination for Groups for London at the gala evening at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel on Friday 15th June 2012.
This prestigious award was voted for by readers of Group Travel Organiser magazine based on their personal experience of the destination.
Louisa Jackley, Industry Relations and UK Leisure Tourism Marketing Manager at London & Partners said: 'I am thrilled London has won this award. We usually work closely with group travel organisers, and with so much going on in London with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and 2012 Games this year have been working even closer. Groups are extremely important to London and with so much going on there is always something new to experience and explore.'
Forthcoming exhibitions and celebrations suitable for groups include the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace with the 'Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration' exhibition and 'The Queen: Art and Image' at the National Portrait Gallery. The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games has brought with it an array of exciting events with the London 2012 Festival, a huge cultural celebration with over 250 events taking place for all group sizes.
