Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience. Just 10% of listings achieve one.


Caroline Kay, Chief Executive of Bath Preservation Trust which owns and manages the three museums – plus Beckford’s Tower which does not receive enough reviews to qualify – said:

“This award shows that our independent museums offer excellence as well as variety, giving visitors to Bath plenty to do and explore. And Bath Preservation Trust members can visit all of these museums as many times as they like for free with their membership!”

With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honours attractions that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travellers”, said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor. “This recognition helps travellers identify properties that regularly deliver great service.”

The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and topicality of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
