Durlston’s gold national tourism award goes on display

Following Durlston Country Park’s huge success at the Visit England Awards for Excellence 2020, its gold award for accessible and inclusive tourism has arrived at the castle.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, the awards ceremony had to take place virtually via Zoom, so no one could actually receive their trophy in person on the night.

The event took place on Monday 17th August 2020 and was hosted by TV presenter, Julia Bradbury.

However, the team at Durlston Country Park in Swanage, have now finally got their hands on their prestigious gold award and put it on display.

“Yay! It’s here! Thank you again to everyone who is helping make visiting and volunteering at Durlston more accessible and inclusive!”

The awards ceremony can be viewed on YouTube and the moment that Durlston Country Park rangers, Ali Tuckey and Katie Black hear that they’ve won is at 44:36.
