Isles of Scilly wins coveted Website Homepage Award

Posted on Jun 29th 2014
The Website Homepage Award is presented to James Beresford

Our new website - VisitIslesofScilly.com - has won the coveted British Destinations Website Homepage Award for 2014 and praised as "an outstanding winner". The awards recognise and commend the efforts of desitnations in the production of Visitor Guides and Website homepages. 

The judges were highly impressed with the site's bold use of photography, along with its comprehensive navigation structure. They commented that it was nice to see the use of more photography within the sub navigation menus to give the user even more of a feel of the destination. The judges also praised how easy it was to order a brochure - a simple, clear link in the header of the site was an excellent addition and something that so many other sites miss. Further to this, an electronic version of the guide was supplied in a ‘page-turning’ booking format along with a form to order a physical copy.  Finally, they noted that the site performed excellently on a range of devices including iPads and iPhones, ensuring a pleasant experience for the user regardless of the device they’re using. "An outstanding winner".  We're just a tinsy winsy bit proud!
