Our new visitislesofscilly.com website has won the British Destinations Website Homepage award 2014. English Riviera's website was 2nd, and Visit Cornwall 3rd. James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland received the award on our behalf. Amongst the judging criteria were accessibility, booking facilities and ability to request a brochure. Mobile and tablet layout were also taken into consideration. Our website received 171 points out of a possible 180. According to the judges' comments, they were highly impressed with the site's bold use of photography, along with the comprehensive navigation structure. They said 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. 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."
