Now in its 15th year, the British Coach Tourism Awards (BCTAs) are among the tourism sector’s most sought-after accolades, featuring 19 different categories.
Ullswater ‘Steamers’ won the ‘River and Inland Cruise Operator’ category, while its sister-attraction, Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, won the ‘Heritage Railway’ category. They are part of the Lake District Estates portfolio, a family owned organisation with heritage and preservation at the heart of the business.
Both were shortlisted thanks to each attraction’s commitment to welcoming coach groups and for creating new experiences tailored for group travel, such as the ‘Lake District Steam Tour’ in partnership with National Trust and ‘Boots, Boats & Marmalade’ as part of the English National Park Experience Collection all launching in 2019.
