Blenheim Palace has been named Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2022 at the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence. The Awards are run by Tourism South East to recognise and celebrate excellence in the industry.
The Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site was awarded the title at the ceremony which took place at the Grand Hotel in Brighton back in December 2022.
The award recognises large visitor attraction businesses providing truly memorable visitor experiences, demonstrating excellence across every aspect of the business.
Heather Carter, Managing Director at Blenheim Palace said, “We are absolutely thrilled to have received this award from an organisation which represents so many of the UK’s leading tourism businesses. It has been an extremely challenging past few years and to be recognised in this way by our peers is a huge boost for the entire team. We are always on the lookout for innovative and exciting ways to improve the visitor experience and this award will definitely spur us all on to work even harder next year.”
Tourism South East is a partnership organisation providing services and expertise to support the performance and growth of tourism businesses and destinations.
Fran Downton, Chief Executive of Tourism South East said, “Achieving excellence is not easy, particularly in these past years. The strength of our winners is testament to the incredible standards and unwavering quality of these exceptional businesses, despite the challenges.
“I was blown away by the quality, positivity, and innovation of the tourism businesses we have across the South East”, she added.
Following their success, Blenheim Palace will now be entered into the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2022/23 which take place in June 2023.
