Northumberland has been nominated for the Best UK Holiday County/Destination in the prestigious 2018 British Travel Awards (BTAs).

The winners will be determined by the public, who have until 30 September to cast their vote.  


The ‘Best UK Holiday County/Destination’ category is particularly strong this year, with Northumberland up against strong competition. Other nominees include Cornwall, Peak District, Devon, Yorkshire, Pembrokeshire, Cumbria and the Lake District.  Once again, Northumberland is the only county in the North East to be nominated, so it is hoped the whole North East region will get behind Northumberland to bring the Gold ‘up north’!
