Three visitor attractions in Wiltshire have been named among the best in the UK according to VisitEngland.

Its Visitor Attraction Accolades for 2020 and 2021 recognised the outstanding visitor experiences on offer across the country.

In total 76 attractions were featured, and they were awarded with either the Welcome Accolade, Hidden Gem, Best Told Story, Quality Food and Drink and the Gold Accolade for all-round top-scoring attractions.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said: “I’m so pleased to see our visitor attractions back in the spotlight with these Accolades that recognise the amazing experiences available across the country.

"They also acknowledge the people who bring the attractions to life through their unparalleled customer service.

2They are the ones who make an attraction the most ‘welcoming’ and give life to the ‘Best Told Story’ whilst the quality of the attractions themselves are rewarded with ‘Quality Food and Drink’ and ‘Hidden Gem’ and of course ‘Gold’ for best all-rounders."

“Now more than ever we need these attractions to encourage and remind us to get out and explore the amazing tourism on offer across England, driving recovery and economic benefits through the regions.”
