The awarding of the Best of the Best puts Tamworth Castle in the top 10% of all businesses and attractions worldwide and allows the castle to display the certificate on its website and all its branding.

Councillor Rob Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “Tamworth Castle has received two more awards this month to add to their accolade of well-deserved recognition of its value and importance.


“The council prides itself on offering such an incredible gem as a heritage attraction, with more than 900 years of history to explore inside this great monument.



“This award of The Best of The Best is a well-deserved and demonstrates the hard work that our staff and volunteers provide daily to visitors.


“A huge congratulations to our volunteer team for their Support Staffordshire Award, who offer many hours of support working in the castle, museum, and archives. We truly could not manage without them.


“These awards will boost the profile of Tamworth even further and hopefully attract even more people to come and visit.”
