Seaton Tramway shortlisted as Finalist in the South West Tourism Awards 2016-17
Seaton Tramway has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Artistic, Cultural & Learning Experience’ category of this year’s South West Tourism Excellence Awards and will be presented with either Gold, Silver or Bronze at a prestigious Awards Ceremony on the 2nd February in the brand new Lansdown Suite at Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol.
To have made it amongst the Winners is a huge achievement, especially in England’s top region. This year saw a record of 602 entries across the South West, and the team of judges undertook a record 380 visits, selecting a total of 132 Finalists and five Highly Commended in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards. As well as being shortlisted as a Finalist, Seaton Tramway has also been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Large Attraction of the Year’ category.
This is expected to be the biggest tourism awards event ever in the region with up to 500 guests and a range of top speakers and entertainment. The finalists include winners from the Dorset, Bristol, Bath & Somerset, Cornwall and Devon Tourism Awards, all of which have been celebrated at county events during the autumn. They also include direct entries from Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
