Gyles BrandrethSilver Travel AwardsNow in their 6th year, we are pleased to announce that this year’s Silver Travel Awards will take place at The Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London, hosted by the inimitable writer and broadcaster, Gyles Brandreth. However, this will be a 'virtual' event for our guests, with the live broadcast on 15 September at 3pm. What makes this so wonderful is that you all can now 'attend', wherever you are!  

Voting for the Awards ran from 1 March until 31 May 2020, and we have now notified the winners of the 7 holiday prizes who were selected at random. Details of the winners can be found here. Thank you for casting over 225,000 votes for those travel companies, cruise lines and destinations which you feel are serving the mature traveller well and acknowledging the best in the travel industry! These awards are only voted for by people such as your who have a keen interest in travel and are best placed to evaluate how well companies are delivering great holidays and experiences for the older traveller.

The shortlisted companies, chosen by you, are available now: there are long-held favourites, and one or two surprises as well!

Why it was more important than ever to vote this year

Laughing Cavalier © The Wallace CollectionWe are all very conscious of the Coronavirus impact, and the restrictions placed on travelling at present. However our Silver Travel Awards voting continued – it was your chance, and especially in these difficult times, to show your support for your favourite travel companies. They truly appreciated it.

Now the voting has closed, the counting has been completed and the shortlists announced. Then, with much anticipation and excitement, the Awards presentation will take place at The Wallace Collection, home to the portrait of The Laughing Cavalier, and many other notable works of art. Our host, Gyles Brandreth, will bring his very special style of humour to the event - our very own Laughing Cavalier indeed - and we expect a very lively, sparkling, socially distanced occasion, which will be a 'virtual' event online on 15 September at 3pm, a perfect time for tea and trophies we think.
