Hello & Welcome to NewcastleGateshead

The North East England Tourism Awards play a major role in showcasing the fantastic range of high quality experiences we offer for visitors here in the North East and are FREE to enter.

The awards have had a hugely positive impact on tourism in the North East, providing a benchmark for all businesses to aspire to and delivering significant benefits to shortlisted and winning businesses alike. By simply taking part you could improve your business performance in terms of turnover, profitability, quality, sustainability, staff morale and customer satisfaction.

Shortlisted entrants at the North East England Tourism Awards also have the chance to compete on a national stage against businesses from England’s other regions at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. St Cuthbert's House and Battlesteads Hotel and Restaurant went on to scoop gold at the 2017 national awards, while other successful North East finalists included Rockcliffe Hall, The Tankerville Arms, and Beamish, The Living Museum of the North.

Details for the North East England Tourism Awards 2017 will be announced soon. Keep an eye on our Twitter channel for updates @TourismAwardsNE.
