Oriental Museum receives accolade for excellent customer service
(17 February 2015)
The Oriental Museum has become one of only a small number of visitor attractions in the country to have received the VisitEngland Welcome accolade.
This recognises outstanding attractions that go the extra mile to create an enjoyable and memorable experience for visitors.
James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland said: “Our attractions are some of our great assets, creating appeal for visitors at home and from abroad. These accolades recognise the wonderful and innovative ways attractions in England are going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure people enjoy their visit, from a friendly and warm welcome, to high-quality food and drink on offer, or capturing the imagination with creative experiences. Our latest round of accolades continues to reflect the wide variety of attractions on offer in England and provide more reasons for Brits to take a day trip or short break this half term.”
Minister for Tourism, Helen Grant MP said: “England has a huge number of world-class attractions to be enjoyed as part of a day trip, short weekend break or longer family holiday. This is a great way to showcase attractions going the extra mile to deliver a high-quality and unique visitor experience. Many congratulations to all those receiving the latest accolades.”
