Wheal Martyn Museum is delighted to announce that they have received a Silver award for ‘Small Attraction of the Year’ at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2015/16 which took place at Exeter Cathedral.  This follows successfully gaining a silver Cornwall Tourism Award in late 2015 in the same category.

The celebratory event, run in association with South West Water Business Services, included performances of the Tongas ‘Sip Tau’ Haka and Exeter Street Band followed by a presentation of 95 trophies to the South West’s leading tourism businesses.  Wheal Martyn was one of three silver winners in the ‘Small Attraction of the Year’ category which was sponsored by ‘Soundview’. Screech Owl Sanctuary, Cornwall and Stuart Line Cruises, Exmouth also took home the Silver award.

Finalists in the awards were also invited to enter the Visit England awards and news came earlier this week that Wheal Martyn, along with 25 other South West entrants, have made it through to the national finals, over twice as many as any other region!
