Muncaster Castle is today celebrating an amazing double success at the prestigious Cumbria Tourism Awards 2022.
The popular Lake District attraction was awarded the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year prize and also won the Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Award at the showcase event.

Peter Frost-Pennington from Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Hawk & Owl Centre says: “We are just flabbergasted! It is fabulous to win these two wonderful awards. They are a credit to all the staff and volunteers who work at Muncaster. It’s a tribute to their enthusiasm and loyalty.
