Speaking last night, Chair of Judges Elaine Lemm said: 

"What a night! It’s been fantastic to see all these wonderful businesses who work so hard giving visitors to Yorkshire the best experience possible and ultimately keep them coming back year on year.

These businesses go above and beyond, and it’s been brilliant to see them get the recognition they deserve. 

The partnership with Visit England means most of tonight’s winners go through to the national finals and I’m certain from the incredible standard we’ve had here tonight we’ll be seeing many national awards coming home to Yorkshire!"

Chair of Welcome to Yorkshire, Peter Box said: 

"I couldn’t have been prouder to have been a part of The White Rose Awards to see the very best in Yorkshire tourism honoured for their huge amount of hard work and dedication to making Yorkshire one of the best places to visit in the world! Every single winner whether they got a bronze, silver or gold should be incredibly proud!"
