'Tourism Oscars'

Harrogate TIC lost out to Winchester for the title of Tourist Information Centre of the year at the prestigious Enjoy England Awards for Excellence during a ceremony held at Madame Tussauds in London Yesterday (Thursday).

Organised by VisitBritain, the awards are regarded as the Oscars of the tourism world and are highly coveted by operators from around the country.

The historic Castle Howard came up trumps as it won the Taste of England Award for its farm shop and café.

Magna Science Adventure Centre was voted the best Business Tourism operator and York Luxury Holidays walked away with an award recognising the company as the best self-catering holiday provider.

David Andrews, chief executive of the Yorkshire Tourist Board, said: "It's an outstanding achievement. Only London equalled our performance this year.

"Quality of product is vital to an enhanced visitor experience. Magna, Castle Howard and York Luxury Holidays are perfect examples of excellence; they deserve the accolade 'best in the land."

Yorkshire was nominated in 5 of the 13 categories; alongside Harrogate TIC, the other runner-up was Caroline Laurent of the West Yorkshire Playhouse, she was nominated for her outstanding customer service.
