Coach Award

Following the announcement last week that the Isle of Man had been named ‘Best Coach Destination of the Year’ at the National Coach Tourism Awards, Manx National Heritage would like to congratulate all concerned. 

Edmund Southworth, Director of MNH said:

'We were delighted to hear that the partnership working between Isle of Man Tourism, accommodation providers, Isle of Man Steam-Packet Company, heritage railways, the Island’s visitor attractions and ourselves has succeeded in delivering what the coach operators and their customers want from their holiday destination and that this has been acknowledged and endorsed with this award.  Working together to extend the season to meet the needs of the groups market and responding to feedback from the coach operators and group organisers about their particular needs in respect of group travel, visits, accommodation has clearly paid off for the Island.'

Most of the groups visiting the Island visit one or more MNH sites during their stay. MNH has helped facilitate new initiatives to bring group travel organisers to the Isle of Man and helped maintain a relationship with them through attendance at travel trade events in the UK. Many of the coach companies now visiting the Island are delivering new business for the Manx Visitor Economy.
