East Midlands

In the east of England, six tourist attractions were honoured by VisitEngland.

Among the winners was the D. H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum in Nottingham, which was applauded for offering visitors a ‘warm welcome’. The authentically restored miner’s cottage, where the author was born, includes a gift shop and museum with exhibits on the surrounding countryside, which inspired his work.

Meanwhile, the King Richard III Visitor Centre and the National Space Centre, both in Leicester, were recognised for the ‘unique’ ways they communicate stories through exhibitions and displays.

East of England

In the east of England, 12 attractions were recognised by the VisitEngland judges.

Chilford Hall Vineyard in Cambridge – one of the oldest established vineyards in England – was praised for the way it details its wine-making story.

Meanwhile, the ruins of Creake Abbey in Fakenham, Norfolk, got the thumbs up for its food and drink offering and the Sea Life Adventure aquarium in Southend-on-Sea was praised for giving guests a ‘warm welcome’.
