Horniman wins Gold from VisitEngland

We are very proud to have received our first Gold accolade from VisitEngland.

The Gold accolade, given only to the highest scoring venues taking part in the Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme, recognises our ‘across-the-board standard of excellence’ in creating ‘a really great day out for visitors’.

We are very pleased with this news, especially as we can also announce record figures for the opening of our newest exhibition The Robot Zoo, which saw 10,000 visits in the first 10 days. Our figures also show 99% of visitors last year (2015/16) would recommend us to their family and friends.

Victoria Pinnington, our Director of Communications and Income Generation, says: ‘We’re thrilled to receive this Gold accolade from VisitEngland. Following a bumper half term and wonderful feedback from our visitors, we’re really feeling a golden glow at the Horniman this spring.’
