Carnforth Station Heritage Centre’s joint entry with Leighton Hall – ‘A Brief Encounter with Leighton Hall’ has received a Bronze Award in the UK National Coach Awards ‘Making Coaches a Better Choice’ category
The Award is designed to recognise initiatives big or small, which genuinely improve life for coach operators, coach drivers and of course, their passengers.
‘The judges thought this was a good example of two major attractions responding to what customers were asking for and working together making visiting by coach an attractive option and achieving modal shift’
Group and coach tour operators often asked both Carnforth Station Heritage Centre and Leighton Hall where else each would recommend that the group also visit.
So, last year the two North Lancashire attractions teamed up to offer a joint admission and refreshment package on a trial basis through summer 2017.
It became a permanent offering in 2018 and bookings have already exceeded all expectations.
