Snowdon Mountain Railway nominated for best UK Heritage Attraction
Here at Snowdon Mountain Railway we’re flying the flag for Wales in the 2015 British Travel Awards (BTA) after being named as a finalist in the UK Heritage Attraction category.
The British Travel Awards are the largest consumer voted programme in the UK with more than 1.25 million votes cast last year to determine the winners.
In the last couple of months we named one of our carriages to honour Welsh classical-crossover singer Katherine Jenkins OBE, celebrated our oldest engine’s 120th anniversary with special guests and kicked off the 100 day Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour by carrying the coveted Webb Ellis Cup up to the summit of Snowdon.
These recent special events have been an addition to our famous train services, carrying passengers to the highest peak in Wales and England. With so much to offer we hope to gain the support of our past and future visitors, giving us the votes to win the award and reaffirm Wales as a number one tourist destination!
British Travel Awards’ chief executive, Lorraine Barnes Burton said:
“We are a proudly independent organisation and to receive a BTA is a true accolade. The awards are recognised by the travelling public as the benchmark for excellence.”
Alan Kendall, general manager at Snowdon Mountain Railway, said:
“With more than 130,000 visitors every year we receive so many positive comments about our attraction.
“We hope the public will back our bid as winning the award would be a great tribute to all the staff who work so hard to make the once in a lifetime trip so special.”
