They say the Accolades 'celebrate excellence within the visitor attraction sector'.

Following their annual assessment by VisitEngland, 76 attractions have been awarded an accolade, based on the score they obtained following their Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme assessment.

The attractions have been acknowledged as a result of the outstanding experiences they provide, highlighting all aspects of the visitor experience, from story-telling to food and drink and from customer service to overall winners.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:

“England is home to world-class attractions right across the country, welcoming visitors throughout the year and offering experiences of the highest quality including excellent food and drink and outstanding customer service. 

"It is also really fantastic to see these accolades recognising the work of those employees, managers and owners who make sure that all who pass through their doors have a truly memorable experience.”

The two sites sit alongside others across the country with gold, best told story and newcomer awards, such as:

  • The Tower of London
  • Tower Bridge Experience
  • National Space Centre, Leicester
  • Cadbury World, Birmingham
