MP Bob Seely said: “It’s fantastic news that the Isle of Wight has been crowned the UK’s Best Destination.
“Those of us who live here already know what an amazing place the Island is but it’s great that it’s been recognised nationally.
“Securing this award is testament to the hard work that Visit Isle of Wight has put in along with Isle of Wight businesses to make us such a great place to visit.
“Daish’s Holidays, IOW Tours, Norton Grange deserve great credit for winning their categories and well done to all those who were shortlisted.
“It’s been a difficult few months but awards like this really give a boost to the Island and promote ourselves nationally as a high-quality place to visit.”
