Tourism is an important part of the Lancashire economy. The industry attracts over 67m visitors each year, who contribute £4.13bn and support more than 59,000 jobs.

Changes this year include four awards linked to the county’s flourishing food & drink sector identifying as part of Marketing Lancashire’s Taste Lancashire campaign. The Taste Lancashire categories now include: Taste Lancashire Restaurant, Taste Lancashire Café/Tearoom, Taste Lancashire Pub/Inn, Taste Lancashire Producer.

The award category open to hotels (under 30 bedrooms), B&Bs, guest houses and boutique accommodation also has a new title, the Lancashire Perfect Stay Award. This award recognises the breadth of choice and wide appeal of Lancashire’s smaller properties, which offer a genuine Lancashire welcome and demonstrate unique character and customer service excellence; where often the ‘small individual touches’ make all the difference.

Rachel McQueen, chief executive of Marketing Lancashire, said:This will be my first Lancashire Tourism Awards as chief executive and I couldn’t be more thrilled at the prospect of seeing those businesses, who contribute so much to the success of Lancashire’s visitor economy, celebrated and rewarded for their outstanding achievements.”
