Get ready to tell us about your innovations and approach to excellence in your product, service, welcome, marketing and sustainable practices.

The Cumbria Tourism Awards celebrate and recognise exceptional quality across a diverse range of tourism businesses. This will be the 20th time we have run a competition.

Winners for many of the categories from the Cumbria Tourism Awards will go on to represent the county at the Visit England Awards for Excellence in 2024. (Wedding Venue of the Year and the Makers and Producers Award are run at a Cumbria level only.)
