These awards recognise best practice in providing accessible, inspirational and inclusive visitor attractions across the UK. They make an important and unique contribution to the travel and tourism industry by highlighting attractions that go above and beyond, to provide a great experience for each and every visitor.
There are 5 award categories - Best Family Venue, Best Free Venue,
Best Heritage Venue, Best Active Venue and the Readers’ Choice Venue.
Accessible Britain Award winners are united by their awareness and understanding of their visitors’ needs as
well as their creativity and attention to detail in meeting
those needs. Full reviews of the winning and highly commended venues feature in Edition 3 of the Guide, but
you can find out who they are below, along with comments from our judges, or by watching the Accessible Britain Awards' video.
