Coventry Cathedral has been voted as ‘Best Historic Attraction or Venue’ in the annual Group Leisure & Travel Awards

Despite the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Group Leisure & Travel Awards ceremony were announced in a special online broadcast recognising the top attractions, tour operators and experiences as voted for by group travel organisers.

Coventry Cathedral was nominated in the category of ‘Best Historic Attraction or Venue’, in an extremely strong field which also included Alnwick Castle, Belvoir Castle, Blenheim Palace, Bletchley Park and Buckingham Palace, who won the category last year.

The Cathedral’s Head of Tourism and Engagement Carla said ‘Winning this award against such strong competition would always have been an amazing honour, but winning it at a time which is so unusual and tricky for the tourism industry as a whole makes it feel even more special.

This award is a testament not only to the hard work of our customer facing Welcome Team, but also those who work tirelessly behind the scenes across the organisation – staff and volunteers. Everyone works together keep the Cathedral at its best for our visitors.

We are incredibly thankful and look forward to welcoming more visitors in the coming months so we can show you just why we’re an award winning Cathedral!’

We are an award-winning Cathedral!
