Awards aren’t everything. There are plenty of fabulous pubs, visitor attractions, restaurants, cafes, hotels, B&Bs and the like dotted across our stunning county that have not won, or even entered, awards but are nevertheless stunning places to visit. 

However, there is definitely an element of kudos and reputation enhancement in being named best-in-class in your field. 

Awards offer deserved recognition of the amazing local businesses across Derbyshire and rightly celebrate their achievements and boost confidence amongst potential customers that theirs is a great place to visit.

Earlier this month, Visit Peak District & Derbyshire (Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire) - the region’s official destination management organisation dedicated to promoting the area nationally and internationally – hosted the Peak District & Derbyshire Tourism Awards at the four-star Casa Hotel in Chesterfield. 

The awards are designed to shine a light and celebrate the best of Derbyshire’s thriving tourism industry. 

Headline sponsors of the prestigious event was Derbyshire-based C W Sellors Fine Jewellery and Luxury Watches. 

Jo Dilley, managing director of Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire, said: ‘Following two years of unprecedented challenges, we’re delighted to recognise the inspirational businesses and passionate individuals who continually raise the bar of the Peak District and Derbyshire’s world-class visitor offer.
