Hexham businessman shortlisted for Visit England's Tourism Superstar award

I am delighted that a constituent of mine, Kevin Robson, has been nominated for this year’s Tourism Superstar award, run by VisitEngland and supported by the Daily Mirror. The Tourism Superstar award, now in its fifth year, recognises and celebrates those in the tourism industry who go the extra mile to ensure tourists have an amazing and unforgettable visitor experience.

Kevin set up Wild Dog Outdoors in 2013 and is primarily a tour guide of Hadrian’s Wall, providing insightful and passionate tours on the Wall’s Roman and ancient history. He loves sharing tales of Northumberland’s place in Britain’s history and exploring the iconic sites within the county with visitors.  Anyone who goes on a tour with Kevin is treated to secret stories and anecdotes, usually the reserve of archaeologists and historians, which bring the locations to life. 

The public vote is now live on the Mirror’s website and will remain so until the end of March, with the winner to be announced during VisitEngland’s English Tourism Week (25 March-2 April).

I wish Kevin the very best of luck and throw my full support behind him, please spare a few moments of your time today to vote for him and show your appreciation for the work that he does to share our wonderful local history with others.
