The Cumbria Tourism Awards celebrate the high standards of quality and excellence offered across Cumbria’s vast range of tourism businesses. Winning businesses have to demonstrate excellence and innovation throughout their business, including their product, welcome, service, marketing and sustainable practices.

On 22nd June 2016 the finalists from each category, and their guests, celebrated their achievements at a glittering awards evening at Cartmel Racecourse.

The glamorous black tie evening began with a sparkling drinks reception before the winners of the Cumbria Tourism Awards 2016 were revealed. Then it’s time to sit back and relax and enjoy some of the best Cumbrian produce, and company, during a three course dinner.

There is an award category to suit everyone across Cumbria’s vast and diverse range of tourism businesses. Many of the winners will go forward to represent Cumbria at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2017.
