Eureka! wins Bronze Access for All Tourism Award

Wednesday 22 May

We’re incredibly proud to announce that Eureka! has been awarded Bronze in the Access for All category of the 2013 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence. These prestigious awards, currently in their 24th year, promote excellence in England’s tourism industry, and we couldn’t be more pleased that our Helping Hands project has been celebrated for providing some of the best access facilities the country has to offer.

Now in its second year, Helping Hands is made possible by funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and provides a range of services that help disabled children and their families enjoy a day at Eureka! whilst reducing the stresses and strains that a family day out can entail. Our Extra Pair of Hands service, in which a trained member of staff provides bespoke support during a family’s visit,  is what really impressed the judges and secured our place in the 2013 Access for All pantheon.

Other winners in the Access for All category include Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool, awarded Gold, and the Science Museum, London with Silver.
