The Alrewas site is a finalist in the large visitor attraction of the year category in the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence.

The national centre for Remembrance will find out if it has won gold, silver or bronze at a ceremony later this month.

VisitEngland chief executive Sally Balcombe said: “These awards are a celebration of our thriving tourism industry.

“They highlight the people and the organisations that deliver amazing experiences for visitors, raising the profile of England as a world-class destination.

“The finalists have shown themselves to be of the highest calibre, using their talent and innovation to deliver excellence.

“The hundreds of applications this year reflect the quality products across our tourism landscape and I warmly congratulate all the finalists and wish them the very best of luck.”
