We are delighted to be able to announce we have been awarded the VisitEngland Welcome Accolade for 2022-2023.
Accolades were handed to 91 attractions across England, recognising all aspects of the visitor experience and were awarded in five categories including ‘Hidden Gem,’ ‘Best Told Story,’ ‘Quality Food and Drink,’ ‘Welcome,’ as well as ‘Gold’ for all round top scoring attractions.
Our charity received an award based on the scores we obtained following an annual VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme assessment.
Director of Engagement and Income Generation Sally Crawford said: “We are just over the moon to have received the Welcome award for the visitor experience at Bransby Horses.
“This award celebrates the hard work and high levels of attention to detail our team here have shown.”
VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said: “The attractions honoured today go out of their way to make visits memorable, creating reasons for people to travel to new locations, also boosting local economies across England.”
Now in their ninth year VisitEngland’s Visitor Attraction Accolades are available to participants of the VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme across a range of tourism attractions from historic houses, gardens, country parks and farm attractions to galleries, museums, churches and cathedrals.
Tourism is one of England’s largest and most valuable industries, supporting hundreds of thousands of businesses, employing about 2.6 million people and, in 2022, generating £66.3 billion in domestic visitor spending.
