At the 2015 Group Travel Awards on 5 June 2015, the Houses of Parliament was presented with the award for ‘Best Company or Venue offering Guided Tours’.
Competition for the award was strong with the other finalists being BBC Media City Salford, Big Bus Tours London, Buckingham Palace, Canterbury Guided Tours, City & Village Tours, Coronation Street Tour, Leeds Castle and Manchester United Museum & Tour.
On receiving the award at the London Hilton on Park Lane Ian Lacey, Marketing & Travel Trade Manager at the Houses of Parliament, commented:
“It is particularly special to be recognised by group travel organisers; people who tend to visit many places and take part in a lot of guided tours each year. Winning this award is not only a reminder of the broad appeal of the tours we offer at the Houses of Parliament, but also acknowledges the enormous amount of teamwork that goes into delivering a rewarding and enjoyable experience for our visitors.”
