The accolades are available to attractions that are part of the Visitor Attractions Quality Scheme. They are awarded by using a scoring system based on a biennial assessment by Visit Wales. There are four accolades:
Gold award for the top scoring attractions,
Best Told Story,
Quality Café award.
These accolades reward attractions who go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure people enjoy their visit. The accolades reflect the wide variety of attractions on offer in Wales including museums and galleries, farm attractions, historic houses, theme parks, gardens, churches, country parks, boat trips and action packed activities.
Huge congratulations to The Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran who have been awarded a Gold Accolade for achieving excellence for their facilities and their customer service.
And a massive well done to Milford Haven Heritage & Maritime Museum who have been awarded the Hidden Gem accolade for a visitor attractions with less than twenty thousand visitors.
Congratulations to both.
