Woodhorn Museum Wins 2022 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award

12/07/2022

Woodhorn Museum today announced it has been recognised by Tripadvisor as a 2022 Travellers’ Choice award winner for attractions. The award celebrates the top 10% of tourist attractions across the country based on outstanding visitor reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months.

“Well laid out over a few acres with very interactive exhibits telling some harrowing stories of life as a miner. Internal part of the museum was amazing and a good coffee shop to boot. A total must if you are in this area” Tripadvisor Review

“We would thoroughly recommend a visit. The story of this and other local pits, and the people who lived and worked here, is told in a very interesting and engaging way. The annual pass for the cost of a single visit is an excellent bonus.” Tripadvisor Review

Rowan Brown, Chief Executive at Museums Northumberland said: “We are delighted that Woodhorn Museum has been awarded a 2022 Traveller’s Choice award. It is down to the hard work and dedication of the whole team at Museums Northumberland that we consistently receive such positive reviews from our visitors. We really value feedback and regularly reflect on and action any changes to continually improve the visitor experience.”

“Congratulations to the 2022 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Winners,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “The Travellers’ Choice Awards recognise the best in tourism and hospitality, according to those who matter most: your visitors. Ranking among the Travellers’ Choice winners is always tough — but never more so than this year as we emerge from the pandemic. Whether it’s using new technology, implementing safety measures, or hiring outstanding staff, I’m impressed by the steps you’ve taken to meet travelers’ new demands. You’ve adapted brilliantly in the face of adversity.”
