The Hepworth Wakefield awarded GOLD by VisitEngland

03 Nov 2021

VisitEngland has today announced the latest winners of its Visitor Attraction Accolades for 2020 and 2021 recognising the outstanding visitor experiences on offer across the country.

The Hepworth Wakefield has been awarded the highest accolade by VisitEngland for the visitor experience it offers. The awards are based on scores achieved in an annual Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme assessment in which The Hepworth scored highly in every category.

We are so delighted to have been awarded VisitEngland’s highest accolade for the quality of our visitor experience. It is a very thorough and rigorous assessment that considers everything from pre-visit communications and onsite interpretation of the exhibits to the welcome received by our visitors. This award is a testament to the extra mile that the whole team at The Hepworth Wakefield goes to every day to provide an exceptional, world-class experience for our visitors. We hope our gold award encourages many more people to come and enjoy the warm and inspiring experience we offer in Wakefield.”- Simon Wallis, Director, The Hepworth Wakefield.

“I’m so pleased to see our visitor attractions back in the spotlight with these Accolades that recognise the amazing experiences available across the country. They also acknowledge the people who bring the attractions to life through their unparalleled customer service. They are the ones who make an attraction the most ‘welcoming’ and give life to the ‘Best Told Story’ whilst the quality of the attractions themselves are rewarded with ‘Quality Food and Drink’ and ‘Hidden Gem’ and of course ‘Gold’ for best all-rounders.” – Andrew Stokes, VisitEngland Director
