A HEREFORDSHIRE castle has been given a prestigious award by TripAdvisor.

Eastnor Castle, near Ledbury, has been recognised by the travel website in its Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best attractions for 2022.

It is based on the quality and quantity of traveller reviews and ratings posted on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period, from January 1 to December 31, 2021.

Awards are given to attractions in the top 10 per cent of the best reviews and ratings from thousands worldwide.


Kanika Soni, chief commercial officer at TripAdvisor said: "Congratulations to the 2022 Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best winners.

"The awards recognise the best in tourism and hospitality, according to your guests.

"Ranking among the best is always tough but never more so than this year as we emerge from the pandemic.

"You've all adapted brilliantly in the face of adversity."

Becky Williams, head of marketing at Eastnor Castle said "We are delighted to have been recognised and would like to thank everyone who takes the time to review Eastnor Castle after their visit.

"We are proud of the family day out we offer our visitors, and after a turbulent couple of years for the tourism industry as a whole, this has been a very welcome acknowledgement."

"We are looking forward to opening our gates for the school summer holidays on July 24."
