Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways is finalist in International Tourism Awards

Caernarfon Station and our First Class Pullman carriages have been shortlisted by the British Guild of Travel Writers for the award for ‘Best UK & Ireland Tourism Project’ in the ‘BGTW International Tourism Awards 2020’.

These prestigious awards recognise excellence in tourism projects in the UK and across the world that members of the BGTW have visited in the course of their travels and which they believe deserve wider recognition. Projects must have started or opened within the last three years. 

During October 2020 the nominated tourism projects and initiatives were voted on by all the members of the BGTW. 

Simon Willmore, BGTW chairman, says: 

“Each year our members nominate tourism projects and initiatives that they have visited and feel deserve wider notice. Being shortlisted as a finalist is not only an achievement in its own right but also recognition of the important role the tourism project/initiative plays in attracting visitors and boosting the region’s/area’s visitor economy.” 

Clare Britton, F&WHR Commercial Manager, says: 

“We’re delighted to be nominated. This has given us a real boost and we look forward to welcome back travellers to see our new station and carriages that have been built to further lift our customer experience. 

The winners of the BGTW International Tourism Awards are due to be announced on 21 March 2021 at The Savoy in central London.
