Businesses and attractions in Bridlington and its surrounding villages have been shortlisted for a prestigious tourism award.

Organisers of Hull and East Yorkshire’s premier tourism awards, the Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards, have been “staggered” at the quality of this year’s entries.

“To shortlist down to 72 from approaching 200 applications has been really tough,” said Visit Hull and East Yorkshire tourism manager Andy Gray. “The quality of the entries this year has been incredible. It highlights what a brilliant tourism offer we have for the visitor across Hull & East Yorkshire.”

The shortlist features some of Hull and East Yorkshire’s finest attractions, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, accommodation providers and tourism experiences.

The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony on Thursday March 15 at Hull’s first four-star hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton, which opened in Ferensway just before Christmas.

Bridlington Spa, Thorpe Hall Caravan & Camping Site, in Rudston, The Cow Shed @ Fraisthorpe Beach and Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park are some of the attractions up for an award.

In total, finalists in 13 categories have been announced today with a 14th award, the Remarkable East Yorkshire Passion Award, being given on the night to the person considered to have made a significant contribution to tourism in the region.

Winners will also be eligible for shortlisting through to the Visit England Awards for Excellence.
