Welcome to the Awards website for 2017. The VisitEngland Awards for Excellence are the most prestigious awards in English tourism and here you can find out all about the many benefits of taking part together with all the information you need to guide you through the application process.
This year we have introduced some exciting changes to the award categories embracing the latest and most popular tourism services and products. There will be new categories for Glamping, Guided Tours and an additional Self Catering category for single unit properties and for the first time, self catering properties will be mystery shopped, as other categories. The serviced accommodation categories, previously Small and Large Hotel and Bed & Breakfast have been refreshed this year to a single category for full service hotels of any size, and a Bed & Breakfast category aimed at owners who have adapted their own home to offer bed & breakfast on a small scale. All the other styles of guest accommodation and limited service hotels should now apply for the new Boutique/Guest Accommodation category.
