VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Accolade – Gold Award 2021-22
We are proud to announce we have been awarded the VisitEngland Gold Award
VisitEngland’s Accolades are designed to celebrate excellence within the visitor attraction sector and showcase those businesses in our VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme that go the extra mile to provide a high-quality day out. This could be through a warm welcome, an engaging story, a delicious lunch or the overall visitor experience. Accolades are given for the following categories: Welcome, Best Told Story, Quality Food & Drink, Hidden Gem and Gold.
The winning attractions have gained the accolades based on scores received following their annual VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme assessments. Marks were allocated to the 97 attractions for the outstanding experiences they provide to visitor.
VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:
“It’s so exciting to see our brilliant attractions providing outstanding experiences for visitors and to recognise and showcase the variety and quality across the country.
“England has unmissable visitor attractions and experiences that deliver world-class customer service. They also provide the warmest of welcomes and unforgettable storytelling that connects the whole experience, including retail and food and drink offers that exceed expectations.”
Introduced in 2014, the accolades are available to VisitEngland’s Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme participants across a wide range of tourism experiences in England from museums and galleries, farm attractions, historic houses and gardens to churches, cathedrals and country parks. Participating attractions are supported by a network of highly trained and experienced assessors who advise them on improving and promoting the quality, accessibility and sustainability of their offer.
