TWO Cumbrian visitor attractions have been shortlisted in the British Coach Tourism Awards scheme.

Ullswater Steamers and Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway have been recognised in the awards, which recognise coach-friendly attractions as well as the best tour operators.

Ullswater Steamers (above) has been recognised in the river and inland cruise operator category, and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway in the heritage railway category.

Rachel Bell, head of marketing and development at Lake District Estates, said: “To be shortlisted in such prestigious awards for both of our heritage visitor attractions is a fantastic achievement and shows how hard the teams have worked and contributed to be recognised in these respective categories.

“We look forward to finding out the results in March, and to yet another exciting year ahead for tourism in Cumbria.”

Winners of the awards will be announced on 21st March at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham. The event is highly regarded within the industry and attended by more than 400 coach tour operators and suppliers every year.
