What is the UK Heritage Awards?

The highly coveted UK Heritage Awards recognise the very best historic houses, gardens, museums and heritage sites in the UK, as well as the finest places to stay.

Celebrating the very best of UK Heritage, shortlisted venues from top to toe of the UK come together at Grocers’ Hall to mark the occasion.

The UK Heritage Awards are hosted by Visit Heritage, one of the UK’s leading heritage, tourism and destination marketing companies; Visit Heritage publishes Hudson’s heritage guide and the UK’s longest-running independent hotel guide, Signpost.

The winners of the UK Heritage Awards 2019 were crowned across twelve categories, plus Individual Award for Contribution to Heritage, which were adjudicated by a panel of judges formed of leading figures and experts on UK Heritage.
