divider

Oxford Castle & Prison has been nominated for the Best UK Heritage Attraction in the 2019 British Travel Awards (BTAs). The winners will be decided by a public vote, with the successful companies announced at the BTA Gala Awards Dinner in London on the 27th November.

The British Travel Awards is the largest and most influential poll of consumer opinion on the performance of leisure, travel and tourism providers and is considered a benchmark for excellence in the travel and tourism industry.

Chris Abbott, General Manager at Oxford Castle & Prison said: “We’re delighted to be nominated for Best UK Heritage Attraction in the 2019 British Travel Awards. Since opening in 2006, our wonderful team have brought to life the real stories of the people who lived and died in the turbulent history of both the Castle and Prison and it’s brilliant to have the opportunity to keep the history alive.”

BTA chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The British Travel Awards gives the opportunity to reward travel and tourism enterprises for outstanding performance in service delivery and product offering. Last year more than 750,000 votes were cast by the travelling public to determine the 2018 Award winners; voting in the 2019 Awards is now open with nominated companies having until 30th September to lobby their happy customers for votes – good luck to Oxford Castle & Prison.”

The British Travel Awards is a proudly independent organisation, verified by leading global business practitioners, Deloitte.
