Let's make it a hat-trick!
For the past two years the Giant's Causeway has been named the UK's Best Heritage Attraction at the British Travel Awards - but we need YOUR help to keep the award in Northern Ireland!
The British Travel Awards are the nation's largest consumer poll of products and services across the travel and tourism sector. The Giant's Causeway made history in November 2015 when it was named the the UK's Best Heritage Attraction - the first time the accolade was bestowed upon a Northern Ireland landmark. We won it again in 2016 but we need your help to keep it.
The National Trust team at the Giant's Causeway regularly welcomes thousands of daily visitors and offers a first-class visitor experience and a warm welcome to travellers from across the world.
Since opening its doors in July 2012, the award-winning Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre has welcomed over four million guests from across the globe and with continued investment in growing its international markets, the iconic site has seen a 25% increase in visitors from North America, Australia and New Zealand since the beginning of 2017.
During peak season, more than 180 members of staff are employed at the Giant's Causeway to help visitors unlock the mystery and stories of the landscape. Most of our staff live in the Causeway Coast and Glens and are passionate advocates for the area.
The Visitor Centre building which was designed by Heneghan Peng Architects is widely recognised for its sustainability and design, winning awards such as the BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Award 2012 for sustainability in design, materials, energy, construction management and ecology.
The Centre is the gateway to the world famous stones, more than 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, evidence of a dynamic and transformative period in the earth's history.
The National Trust, as a conservation charity is committed to investing in and protecting Northern Ireland's first World Heritage Site so that it can be enjoyed for ever, for everyone.
