Waddesdon awarded prestigious VisitEngland Gold accolade for third year in a row

Waddesdon Manor has been awarded a VisitEngland Gold Accolade for the third year running. The national scheme was designed to celebrate excellence within the visitor attraction sector, and showcase businesses that go the extra mile to provide a high quality day out.

VisitEngland said ‘This accolade is testament to the high standards achieved, which the assessor felt were truly deserving of recognition.’

Other local winners include Bletchley Park, who were also awarded a Gold accolade, and the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, who received an award for ‘Best Told Story’.

Simon Wales, Chief Operating Officer at Waddesdon, said ‘we are honoured to have been awarded the VisitEngland Gold accolade. We welcomed over 460,000 visitors last year, and this recognition means so much to all the staff and volunteers whose commitment makes Waddesdon what it is today. The team work tirelessly to ensure all visitors experience a day steeped in heritage and history that they won’t forget.’
