Frequently asked questions

Who can apply.

The local awards are open to tourism businesses that are located in the catchment area of the relevant destination. In order to be forwarded to the national awards, the local competition must be officially linked to and recognised by the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. All businesses must be directly involved in tourism, contributing to the visitor economy with a significant proportion of business generated by people visiting from outside the local area. Winners of local awards will automatically be entered into the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence.

Category-specific eligibility requirements can be found on the awards categories page .

Will I have to pay to enter?

It is free to be put forward to the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. Local competitions may charge an entry fee, although the majority are free or only charge non-members to apply.

There is no local awards competition in my area – can I just apply straight to the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence?

To ensure a level playing field, all applicants must succeed in their local competition in order to progress to the national awards. We are liaising with destinations that do not currently offer local awards to offer support in setting up a competition.

If there isn’t a local competition in your area, you can contact your local Destination Management Organisation to let them know that you’re interested in them establishing one that’s officially linked to and recognised by the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence.

How do you judge applications?

All applications, regardless of which local competition you are applying for, are judged using the same guidelines. Feedback is given to every entrant on how they can improve their application. Once all entries have been scored, a shortlist is created to help determine the overall local winner.

Some competitions may carry out judging visits to all applicants, while others may visit a selection. Local winners are automatically put forward to the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence.

Awards trophy with gold rose

England’s tourism awards champion the very best of the country’s tourism industry, celebrating quality, innovation and best practice. 

The annual awards cycle begins with a series of local competitions, which feed up to the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. Businesses complete a single application and local winners are automatically put forward to the national judging panel.

The highlight of each awards cycle is the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence event where the finest businesses receive the most coveted accolade in English tourism.

In light of current Government guidance and the ongoing disruption we are facing we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s VisitEngland Awards for Excellence Learning Expo and Awards Presentation event, due to take place on 16 June 2020 in Hull.

Whilst we are disappointed to have to cancel the event we feel it is important to recognise those businesses that over the last year delivered amazing experiences for visitors and played a pivotal role in the English tourism industry. This year we will announce and recognise the winners via a virtual presentation and we will provide more information as soon as it is available. We are sure you will understand why we have taken this decision. 

We at VisitEngland hope you keep safe and well in these difficult times.

Kirstie Logan, Operations and Marketing Manager of Brickhouse Farm Holiday Cottages said; “We are over the moon to have been shortlisted for the Visit England Awards for Excellence under the Accessible & Inclusive Award category. The fact that this shortlisting coincides with our ten-year anniversary we feel, it honours our hard work and dedication over the past decade.  Creating a socially inclusive environment for both our guests and locals where everyone is accepted is at the heart of everything we do here at Brickhouse and to be recognised for this on a national level is truly a great birthday gift.

“Accessibility is not an afterthought here at Brickhouse it forms a part of everything that we do with a natural ease, and we love to celebrate other businesses that take the time to make sure that everyone feels included and can benefit from their offerings in a comfortable and safe environment. Brickhouse Farm Holiday Cottages was born from personal experience of living with a disabled family member and Ian, Sue and their family have worked tirelessly to provide an environment where not only the disabled family member can enjoy but also their family, friends and care staff can feel welcome. They, along with the Brickhouse & Lakeside family, feel that no one should be made to feel different or ostracized and purposely ensure that this is not the case within each section of the business.

“Our gorgeous lakeside setting paired with our local wildlife illuminates the relaxed and calming environment here at Brickhouse, an environment that brings our customers back year after year. “

visit england awards for excellence

VisitEngland has announced the winners of its annual Awards for Excellence 2023.

The 20 Gold Award winners were announced at an evening ceremony on 7 June hosted by Alex Polizzi at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.

Categories ranged from ‘Small Visitor Attraction of the Year’ and ‘B&B and Guest House of the Year’ to ‘Business Events Venue of the Year’ and ‘Experience of the Year.’

The Gold, Silver and Bronze winners were selected from hundreds of tourism businesses across England including hotels, self-catering accommodations, B&Bs, glamping operators, attractions, restaurants, pubs and museums.

The prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence has been running for more than 30 years and in 2023 sponsored by the Caravan and Motorhome Club.

The awards celebrate and champion innovation, quality and best practices across the industry recognising businesses and individuals who raise the bar of England’s tourism offer.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:

“It is fantastic to come together as an industry to celebrate our world-class tourism businesses. Competition this year was fierce with customer service excellence evident across every category, thanks to the passion and dedication of individuals.

“From an outdoor theatre in Suffolk to a boutique B&B in Essex, from an arboretum museum in Staffordshire, a zoo farm in Bristol, to island boat tours in Northumberland, this year’s awards also showcase the wonderful range of quality tourism products on offer across England.

“I congratulate all the winners and especially those who won Gold, an achievement cementing their place as the country’s crème de la crème, standard-bearers for England’s tourism industry.”

Four special awards were also presented this year including an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Tourism Award,’ a ‘Travel Content Award’, a ‘Tourism Superstar Award’ and a ‘TXGB Trailblazer Award’.

The Tourism Superstar Award went to Geoff Colvin, a volunteer stationmaster at the Kent and East Sussex Railway. The award is run in partnership with the Mirror, following a public vote and competition earlier this year.

The Outstanding Contribution to Tourism Award went to ‘England’s Coast’ in recognition of its valuable role in boosting domestic and inbound tourism to England.

The Travel Content Award, which recognises the media’s important contribution in championing domestic tourism, was won by Alicia Miller of The Independent with her story ‘ How to do a classic Cotswolds weekend, car-free.’

The TXGB Trailblazer Award went to Red Funne l , Isle of Wight, in recognition of its efforts in driving inbound bookings through the business-to-business platform, also benefitting the domestic market.
