Two businesses in Norfolk have been named as finalists in a prestigious tourism award.

ROARR! in Lenwade has been shortlisted twice at this year's VisitEngland Excellence Awards.

The park has undergone a major revamp in recent years with bosses stating “we are no longer the local playpark" after two new rides were launched last summer. 

The new flyer and swing rides were added to the 25 indoor and outdoor attractions.

Its work has been recognised with the park shortlisted for the Large Visitor Attraction of the Year prize as well as the Accessible and Inclusive Tourism Award. 

Mill Farm Eco Barns in Winterton has been included on the shortlist for the Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Award.

The barns are heated solely by renewables, including on-site generation, and a conscious effort is made to be single-use plastic-free across the business.

The two finalists will now be invited to an awards ceremony in Liverpool on June 5 where the winners will be announced.
