In the first-ever virtual ceremony of Camping Magazines Editors Choice Awards, we find out which tents have been chosen as The Best Tents of 2021.

These awards are now in their 9th year and are seen as the most important awards in the family camping tent market in the UK. The awards feature 9 categories for tent awards.

Camping Magazine has been the leading magazine for generations when it comes to family camping. For 60 years and is trusted by British campers and now reaches more than a million readers. With the magazine issued in both print and digital format, it is easy to pick a copy of your own.

In fact, the magazine celebrates it’s 60th birthday this year! What an achievement! So as it’s the year of their 60th Birthday celebrations they certainly weren’t going to let the pandemic stop them from issuing their Editors Choice Awards. So in a very different style, Iain Duff was still able to present the awards with a virtual ceremony.

Award Winning Tents

Congratulations to all the winners and we couldn’t agree more on the Overall Tent of the Year as the Anantara. This tent is a spectacular tent and with the NEW Single Point Inflation Valve it makes it even easier to pitch.

So if you are looking for a new tent in 2021 I’m sure one of these award-winning tents should suit your needs. It would be good to know that you are using the best should you purchase one in the future. You can also view our tent reviews here.
