We won!

We are delighted to say that we celebrated three big wins at this year’s North East Tourism Awards further securing Northumberland as the North East’s top spot for Tourism.

Ran in partnership with Visit England Awards for Excellence, NGI’s award ceremony proved to be a remarkable celebration for a plethora of venues and businesses within the North East and we were elated to be a part of it!

Joyously walking away with three Gold Awards, CEO Mark Brassell wishes to thank Northumberland and the public’s vital support at a time of global crisis where tourism suffered detrimentally.

Winning the Resilience and Innovation, Experience of the Year and Largest Visitor Attraction Gold Award is a monumental achievement, and we couldn’t be prouder. This kind of success would be impossible to achieve without the help of a staggering amount of people. This includes our hardworking staff, trustees, volunteers, Her Grace The Duchess of Northumberland and of course the public’s unwavering support.

After opening our gates permanently as restrictions lifted last March, celebrating The Poison Garden’s busiest Summer yet and welcoming you all to a dazzling Winter Light Trail, it is an honour to accept the awards on behalf of all our hardworking staff.

There is an immense amount of people we owe these awards to, and we wish we could congratulate each and every one of them. This award is for everyone across site who ensure every day at The Garden is a success.

Congratulations to all nominees, it was a privilege to be named alongside you all! We are looking forward to a great year ahead but for now let’s celebrate! ?
