Cumbria Tourism Awards 2018

Entries Closed!


The Cumbria Tourism Awards celebrate the best Cumbria has to offer and are now in their 16th year. Cumbria’s tourism businesses, and the talented individuals behind them, drive a visitor economy worth £2.72 billion. Their achievements, hard work and dedication are worthy of recognition.

Cumbria offers ever increasing levels of quality and service to our annual visitors, which in 2016 exceeded 45 million, and the Cumbria Tourism Awards recognise those businesses offering excellence and innovation in their product, service, welcome, marketing and sustainable practices.

Winners for many of categories from the Cumbria Tourism Awards will go on to represent the county at the Visit England Awards for Excellence in 2019. New Tourism Business Award, Wedding Venue of the Year, Outstanding Contribution to Excellence, and our two new categories, Culture and Heritage Experience Award and Adventure Experience Award are run at a Cumbria level only. Cumbria has seen a great deal of success at national level over the years, resulting in fantastic media promotion for the winning businesses and Cumbria – the Lake District as a quality visitor destination.

This year, there were 18 award categories available for entry, all celebrating the huge range and diversity of Cumbria’s tourism industry.
