Magna wins Enjoy England's Excellence business tourism award

Magna Science Adventure Centre beat off stiff competition to pick up the Business Tourism Award at the Enjoy England Awards for Excellence last night. Judges praised the Rotherham visitor attraction - a former steel plant - for helping re-energise the area and continuing to invest in its facilities and staff training.

Matfen Hall picked up the award for the Large Hotel of the Year.
