Hook Lighthouse has been shortlisted for the British Guild of Travel Writers world tourism awards 2018.
The British Guild of Travel Writers is the UK's leading organisation of travel media professionals, established in 1960.
Only Guild members can nominate tourism attractions and destinations for the annual awards and the award-winning global travel writer and guild member Isabel Conway nominated Hook Lighthouse during the summer of 2018. Since that initial nomination, Hook Lighthouse has undergone a rigorous judging process by the British Guild of Travel Writers and it has now made it to the finalist selection as just one of 3 attractions/projects in the running for the best tourism project in UK and Ireland award 2018. The Tourism Awards are for those for the travel trade and judged entirely by the Guild.
Speaking on the news of the shortlisting Manager at Hook Lighthouse Ann Waters says," It is a huge honour for us to be shortlisted as one of three for the best tourist attraction in the UK and Ireland 2018. The British Guild of Travel Writers awards are nominated and voted on by the industry's best travel writers, therefore, the profile of benefit to us of reaching this stage alone in the awards is incredible. All of the team at Hook Lighthouse are thrilled and honoured, the entire team works very hard to ensure each and every visitor enjoys their experience at Hook Lighthouse and this shortlisting is a testament to that hard work.
