Silver in Dorset Tourism awards!
We are delighted to share news that West Bay Discovery Centre has won a silver award at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2020 Finals in the Accessible and Inclusive Tourism category. The Accessibility and Inclusive category focusses on how well attractions and tourism providers respond to the needs of visitors with disabilities and other impairments.
We make every effort to cater for the needs of all our visitors. The Centre is designed to be visitor friendly for those with mobility problems and we have an accessibility guide and a large print guide will be introduced in the coming season to help visitors with sight impairments fully enjoy what the Centre has to offer. We are always working to improve further what we do and an audio guide is in development. This award recognises the progress we have already made in this area. We were also delighted that the West Bay Play Area also won an award. The Play Area is a fantastic facility for all ages and we are within a few minutes walking distance of each other.”
The Dorset Tourism awards were carried out this year by Zoom and has given the Dorset Tourist Industry and welcome boost. For the Discovery Centre, like other tourist and visitor attractions, 2020 was a challenging year and our success in opening the Centre for four months and winning this award is a massive achievement by our manager and volunteers.
Many thanks to Dorset Tourism Awards and all the sponsors that made this event possible.
