Greenwich was the star of the show at last night's BT Visit London Awards 2009 ceremony.
The National Maritime Musuem picked up Gold in the prestigious Visitor Attraction of the Year category. It was Gold again in the Best Tourism Experience category for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, and the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival took first place in the Best Consumer Event category.
It has also just been announced that Greenwich has been named as the "New Capital of Industry" representing Tourism in a new list produced by the Association of Colleges (AoC) ahead of Colleges Week (9-15 November), a national celebration of the role colleges play in providing opportunities for communities, businesses and individuals.
