And the Bronze Award for Small Visitor Attraction at the South West Tourism Awards goes to...


We are delighted to have won this prestigious award which places us among the very top of the South West's many visitor attractions.

Andrea Rowe, Chairman of Trustees of the museum commented ‘We are delighted with the award. We are only able to open the Museum to visitors because of the support of so many volunteers from our community who are passionate about Tiverton's intriguing past and Mid Devon's varied social history.’

The South West Tourism Excellence Awards are the ‘official’ tourism awards for the region, offering entry to businesses in Somerset, Dorset, Bath, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol and the Isles of Scilly as well as linking closely with the awards in Cornwall and Devon.   

300 entries were considered for the Awards, with all entrants undergoing a rigorous short-listing process and 164 going on to be visited by a team of over 30 judges and mystery shoppers.

This year’s judging was the tightest ever, with winners separated by fractions in their mystery shop scores and requiring lengthy debates amongst the Judging Panel.
