A fantastic team of English Heritage staff who welcome people to Stonehenge early every morning and late into the evening for special stone circle visits has been shortlisted for a Tourism Superstar Award.
Organised by VisitEngland and supported by The Mirror, the Tourism Superstar competition recognises the dedication and passion of those working in the tourism industry.
The competition invites members of the public to vote for their favourite Tourism Superstar.
English Heritage, the charity which cares for Stonehenge is now leading a campaign to encourage people to vote for the Stone Circle Experience Hosts, using the social media hashtag #TourismSuperstar
Scott Ashman, English Heritage head of historic properties for Stonehenge said: “For 10 months of the year, visitors can book a visit to go into the stone circle, in the mornings before Stonehenge opens to the public and in the evenings after it closes, accompanied by an English Heritage Host.
“The hosts welcome people as early as 5am in the summer months, and wow visitors from around the world with their extraordinary knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion.
“Their commitment to making sure everyone who visits the monument has the experience of a lifetime is why we think they are Tourism Superstars, and we would love to see people vote for them.”
Fiona Errington, Visit Wiltshire said: “To make the shortlist is a great achievement, especially as a team, as it highlights the high standard of service and enthusiasm, they give to visitors to ensure they have the best possible experience they can have while visiting one of Wiltshire’s top iconic sites.
“The inner access tour is unique and unforgettable as is the team that delivers the experience. VisitWiltshire is supporting their nomination by calling on all Wiltshire tourism and hospitality businesses and our national and international travel industry contacts to vote.
“#VoteStonehenge. We wish them every success.”
Voting closes on 20 March and the winning Tourism Superstar will be announced on 25 March at the end of English Tourism Week 2023.
