Tourism body Visit Suffolk has picked up a national award for its website, which was relaunched earlier this year to include an innovative interactive map.

Visit Suffolk worked alongside Southwold-based design communications agency Spring to make searching for things to do around the county an enjoyable experience in itself as well as suggesting a wide variety of activities and destinations.

The map – which can be found at www.takemetosuffolk.com and is also accessible via the main www.visitsuffolk.com site – has now beaten off competition from rival nominees Welcome to Yorkshire and Visit Bath to win the Best Tourist Board Site category at the TravelMole Web Awards, run by the TravelMole online community for the tourism and travel industry.

Visit Suffolk brand manager Amanda Bond said: “It’s fantastic to achieve national recognition for Visit Suffolk’s creative approach to marketing the county and the many wonderful things that it has to offer tourists.

“We are proud to be paving the way in destination marketing by demonstrating how to meet consumer and business expectations through innovation.”

Visit Suffolk’s tourism business partners can highlight their own offerings on www,visitsuffolk.com with the website constantly being refreshed with new content.

From this week, www.takemetosuffolk.com has taken on a new look to coincide with Visit Suffolk’s autumn campaign, #TheOtherSide, which highlights different aspects of the county’s tourist offering themed around local folklore and legend.
