We're thrilled to be representing the city in the national tourism awards where we are nominated as best large visitor attraction. The nomination follows our success in the Liverpool City Region Tourism awards and our recent Trip Advisor top rating.
In the national ceremony our cathedral is up for best large visitor attraction in a strong category which includes Chatsworth House, Derby; Ironbridge Gorge Museum, Shropshire; The Lost Gardens of Heligan, St Austell; and The Roman Baths & Pump Room Bath,
We will join the other award nominees in a glittering ceremony in Gateshead where all the awards will be presented. All finalists are guaranteed to receive either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended Award.
James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland said: “It’s been another successful year for our Excellence Awards as we’ve received hundreds of applications of an extremely high standard. That’s why all the finalists should be incredibly proud that they’ve been short-listed against such tough competition. I’d like to congratulate all the finalists who now represent the top five in their category in England and wish them all the very best of luck on Awards night at the Sage Centre in Gateshead - a spectacular venue to celebrate the industry’s best.”
We were delighted to have won the local award in a strong category which included Beatles Story, Knowsley Safari Park, Liverpool Central Library, Liverpool Football Club and the Museum of Liverpool. Our win in these well established and prestigious awards organised by Visit Liverpool cemented our reputation as an important destination for the city. Meanwhile this sucess follows our top rating in Liverpool by Trip Advisor customers who named us the best of Liverpool's 289 attractions.
Stuart Haynes, Director of Communications "this is fantastic news showing yet again our popularity as a destination for tourists from around the country and the world. We're in prestigious company for the VisitEngland Awards and look forward to the awards night in May. Our achievement is remarkable for a cathedral which is first and foremost a place of worship. But it relfects our creativity and innovation and above all the value every member of our staff and volunteering team place on welcoming over 500,000 visitors a year".
