WWT Slimbridge finalists in VisitEngland Awards

Following our success in 2024's Bristol, Bath & Somerset Awards and South West Tourism Awards, we're proud to share that we are through to the finals in the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence.

This is the second year we have got through to these awards that champion the very best of England’s tourism industry, this time in the 'Large Visitor Attraction of the Year' category.

The finalists were announced following a rigorous judging process by handpicked tourism industry experts, and we now go on to compete at the national awards, with the Caravan and Motorhome Club announced as headline sponsor.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:

I am always impressed by the tourism businesses who make it onto our list of finalists with their innovative approaches to ensuring people have the most amazing experiences whilst delivering outstanding customer service across England. I congratulate all the finalists and wish them the very best of luck.

The awards' categories range from ‘Large Visitor Attraction of the Year’ and ‘Small Hotel of the Year’ to ‘New Tourism Business of the Year’ and ‘Pub of the Year’.

In addition to the 16 core categories, four special awards are also being presented including an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Tourism Award’, a ‘Travel Content Award’, the ‘Tourism Superstar Award’ and a ‘TXGB Trailblazer Award’.

WWT Slimbridge, along with fellow finalists are invited to attend the national awards ceremony, held at Rum Warehouse at The Titanic Hotel Liverpool on 5 June 2024, where Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be announced at the black tie event. The Family Holiday Charity is the chosen charity for this year’s event.

This year’s Awards aligned with 16 local competitions from across England with winners automatically put forward for the national awards.
