Corinium Museum announced as finalist for South West Tourism Awards

Corinium Museum has been selected as one of the Winners in the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category of this year’s South West Tourism Excellence Awards, as well as being selected to represent the region in the national VisitEngland awards.

South West Tourism stated that each year the judging gets harder as the region’s best vie to be the ‘best in class’.  This year was no exception, with a record of 425 entries to consider, the team of 35 judges undertaking a record 275 visits (up from 213 last year) across all the categories.  Scoring was often separated by fractions of a point, with the final panel meeting considered all judges’ recommendations, alongside websites, review sites and other evidence.  Robin Baker of South West Tourism commented “It really has developed into quite an operation, but so it needs to in judging the region’s best!”

The museum’s Commercial Services Officer Isobel Milne said “We are delighted to have been named as finalists in the South West Tourism Awards. The Museum has a small hard working team who bring Roman Britain to life for residents and visitors to the town. To be a finalist of these awards reflects the museums continued commitment to developing and maintaining an excellent service.”

Robin Baker of South West Tourism commented that “To have made it amongst the Winners is a huge achievement, especially in England’s top region.

The winners will be announced at the South West Awards Ceremony at the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare on Thursday 12th February .
