Durham Tourism Superstar

Visit County Durham (VCD), working in association with VisitEngland and The Northern Echo, is seeking to showcase the best in customer service offered to visitors to the county with the 3rd annual Durham Tourism Superstar initiative.


The award will recognise the dedication and passion of those working in Durham’s tourism industry, and will be awarded to an individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure visitors to Durham have a priceless experience.


The very first Durham Tourism Superstar was announced July 2014 at Visit County Durham’s annual garden party and the winner, Matthew Henderson (Engagement & Participation Assistant at Beamish Museum), went on to be crowned the winner of VisitEngland’s national Tourism Superstar 2015 award which was supported by the Daily Mirror.  The winner of the Durham award 2015 was Lillian Groves, Senior Guide at Durham Cathedral and once again went forward for consideration to the national awards. And, again Durham’s Tourism Superstar was crowned the winner of the national Tourism Superstar 2016 award.
