F&WHR reaches finals of Coach Touring Awards
The Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway has been awarded the accolade of becoming a finalist at the Coach Tourism Awards, held in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The national awards scheme, organised by trade magazine Coach Monthly, and hosted by television presenter and travel and tourism expert, Judith Chalmers, recognises excellence across the coach tourism industry and includes tourist destinations and attractions, industry suppliers, and coach tour operators.

The F&WHR was a finalist in the category for Coach-Friendly Visitor Attraction of the year that recognises a visitor attraction that demonstrates its commitment to welcoming coaches, coach groups and coach drivers.

“These are the only national awards that focus specifically on the coach tourism industry,” says the editor of Coach Monthly, Stuart Render.

“Our winners and finalists are at the forefront in delivering excellence across all sectors of the industry, helping to raise the quality of customer service and quality across coach operators, destinations, visitor attractions and tourism industry suppliers.”
