International Bomber Command Centre awarded prestigious VisitEngland Gold Accolade

The International Bomber Command Centre, near Lincoln, has been awarded Gold standard in the VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Accolades for 2020/21 which recognises outstanding visitor experiences.

Nicky van der Drift, the IBCC’s Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the county’s only Gold Accolade by VisitEngland following our annual assessment.

“It stands testament to the passion and dedication of the team of staff and volunteers who, despite all of the challenges of the pandemic and the threat of closure of the centre, have continued to deliver fantastic customer service and make the centre the best that it can be.

“To be one of only 26 attractions across the country to receive this Accolade is a huge boost for the whole team.”

VisitEngland director, Andrew Stokes, said: “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.

“Now more than ever we need these attractions to encourage and remind us to get out and explore the amazing tourism on offer across England, driving recovery and economic benefits through the regions.”
