Designed to celebrate excellence within the visitor attraction sector, VisitEngland’s Accolades showcase those businesses that go the extra mile to provide a high quality day out, whether through a warm welcome, an engaging story, a delicious lunch or the overall visitor experience.

Spirit of Yorkshire managing director and co-founder David Thompson said: “We are delighted to win this award, especially when you consider that we’re a relatively young business.

“It’s testament to our team that we were one of only 24 businesses in England to win a Welcome Award for the warmth of our welcome. This win stands us in good stead to build on our visitor offering.”
