The Blencathra Field Studies Centre that is close to Keswick had won bronze in the Best Educational Product at the British Youth Travel Awards in London. This education centre offers biology, geography and geology trips for primary age up to university students and also families and individuals on learning holidays throughout the year.
The head of the centre, Tim Foster asserted that they were excited to be awarded a Bronze Award and also check their hard work with the 9,000-plus students that visited the centre every year pay dividends.
Their visitors arrive all over from the United Kingdom and for several of them it was their first trip to the Lake District.
During their courses, students encounter their approach to ‘green tourism’.
Foster then went on to add that it is a very education product and it was enriched via an awareness of the unique relationship between people and the environment. And even more so, due to the fact that the region was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
