VisitEngland Awards for Excellence
Be the best of the best by winning the highest accolade in English tourism.
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.
This year's VisitEngland Awards for Excellence will be held at the Library of Birmingham on 8 June, sponsored by the The Caravan and Motorhome Club.
More than 300 local winners from 14 aligned competitions have been automatically entered into the national awards. Judging panels comprising 33 industry experts and VisitEngland representatives have determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze national winners for each category.
Finalists will be invited to the national awards event where Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be announced across 15 core categories, which include two new awards this year - the 'Unsung Hero Award' and the 'Resilience and Innovation Award'.
