Market Scoops National Visitor Award

Blackburn Market has been voted as the Coach Friendly Shopping Destination of the Year at the annual Coach Tourism Awards on Wednesday 16th March.

Blackburn Market won the title at the awards evening, which took place at the VOX Conference Centre Birmingham after making the shortlist for the first time.

Blackburn Market fought off tough competition from four other shortlisted destinations including Bury Market, Ashton-Under-Lyne Market, Huntley's Country Stores  and Oswaltwistle Mill.

The award, sponsored by the British Tourism and Travel Show, was presented to the market’s team for their continued work promoting Blackburn Market and its partner attractions from the surrounding area.
