Roman Baths is South West Tourism Winner of Winners

11th February 2016

Categories: News

The Roman Baths is celebrating double awards glory following the South West Tourism Awards on February 4.
The popular attraction in the heart of Bath not only received the Gold Award for Access and Inclusivity, shared with the Calvert Trust in Exmoor, it was also named the Winner of Winners at the presentation event at Exeter Cathedral.
The Baths' provision for wheelchair users, such as lower ticket desks, wheelchairs available to borrow and accessible toilets, came in for praise as did its work on training staff in British Sign Language (BSL), its BSL audio tours, use of braille on exhibits and large print leaflets.
The attraction was then selected as the Winner of Winners out of the 16 categories for its services to people in Bath and North East Somerset, including free admission via the council's Discovery Card scheme.
Councillor Patrick Anketell-Jones, the council's Cabinet member for economic development, said: “There have been many efforts made to ensure the historic site can be enjoyed by everyone, including staff training, information provision, and improvements to the building, such as the recent addition of new lifts. 
“We are delighted that these efforts have been recognised with both of these South West Tourism Awards. They are a testament to the fantastic customer service that the staff provides.”
The Roman Baths has also been shortlisted in the Access for All Tourism Award in Visit England’s Awards for Excellence, which will be announced on March 8.
