The National Memorial Arboretum, in Staffordshire, has been shortlisted for three categories (Best Garden Visit, Best Guided Tour and Best UK Attraction) at the tourism industry’s Group Leisure and Travel Awards.

Readers of Group Leisure and Travel magazine expressed their support for the 150-acre woodland and garden site by voting for the popular attraction during the nominating stage of the awards process, ensuring that it would proceed to the finals.

The winners of the Group Leisure and Travel Awards will be announced during a virtual ceremony on Wednesday 7 October.

"A huge thank you to the readers of Group Leisure and Travel magazine for voting for us to proceed to the finals at this year’s awards. Group visitors are incredibly important to us and our team are continually developing new packages specially for this market. This amazing news that we have been nominated in three categories, including Best UK Attraction, follows our recent recognition by Tripadvisor as one of the world’s top 10% of visitor attractions thanks to the exceptional feedback we regularly receive from visitors.

In recent months, we have been working with our partners in the group travel sector to adapt our offer so that we can deliver a first-class visitor experience while complying with government and industry best practice. We look forward to welcoming hundreds of groups to explore the Arboretum throughout the remainder of 2020.”
