Brewery sets gold standard
ROBINSONS Brewery Visitors Centre has been recognised in the VisitEngland awards.
The attraction, on Apsley Street in the town centre, which opened in 2013, was awarded the VisitEngland Gold award.
The accolades are available to attractions that are part of the Visitor Attractions Quality Scheme.
Robinson, director at Robinsons, said: “We couldn’t be prouder to represent Stockport and the north west as one of only a handful of attractions to receive this recognition from VisitEngland.
“Since opening in March 2013, we’ve had the pleasure of sharing our beers, history and story with thousands of families, businesses and beer enthusiasts from across the world.
“The Gold award is the continued confirmation of our dedication to providing an excellent customer experience within a unique setting.”
Others in the north west to pick up awards included Bury’s Fusilier Museum, The Greater Manchester Police Museum and the Rochdale Pioneers Museum.
James Berresford, chief executive of VisitEngland, said: “Our attractions are some of our great assets, creating appeal for visitors at home and from abroad.
“These accolades recognise the wonderful and innovative ways attractions in England are going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure people enjoy their visit.”
