NITB’s Quality Grading Scheme for Visitors Attractions is designed to provide visitors with quality grading information on Northern Ireland’s tourist attractions, whilst assisting operators to maintain and continually improve the quality of their offering. 

With a large number of attraction operators actively participating in equivalent grading schemes in Scotland, Wales and England the introduction of the new grading scheme here provides local attraction operators with an assisted programme of improving quality standards, whilst maintaining their competitive advantage and meeting customer expectations.

Benefits of participating in the scheme for visitor attraction operators include:   

  • Access to one-to-one advice from a team of experienced Quality Advisors.
  • Provision of a written report highlighting the strengths and weaknesses within your business with advice on how to maximise customer satisfaction.
