Isle of Wight wildlife park wins tourism prize

A favourite destination of animal lovers on Isle of Wight holidays has won a top prize at a recent awards ceremony.

Seaview Wildlife Encounter won Gold at the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence, which were held at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey last week (October 21st 2010).

It was the 20th year the ceremony, which is organised by Tourism South East, has taken place, with a record number of entrants marking the occasion.

Mike Bedingfield, chief executive of Tourism South East, stated that award-winners such as Seaview Wildlife Encounter have proved they are the best in their class.

Park director Lorraine Adams said: "The Park is going from strength to strength and what a positive lead in to our 40th anniversary year in 2011 - this is the icing on the cake of a fantastic business year."

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays can see various animals on a trip to Seaview Wildlife Encounter, including wallabies, meerkats, flamingos, otters, penguins and owls.
