The Royal Mint Experience, based in Llantrisant South Wales has been awarded ‘Best Guided Tour’ at the prestigious Group Leisure & Travel Awards. It was the only Welsh attraction in the shortlist for ‘Best Guided Tour’, featuring alongside Kensington Palace, The London Dungeon, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Royal Albert Hall.

The Royal Mint Experience welcomes around 200,000 visitors each year. The unique tour takes visitors ‘behind the scenes’ of coin making, followed by an interactive exhibition exploring 1,100 years of The Royal Mint’s history. Clients will also have the unique experience of seeing The Royal Mint’s workforce producing official UK coins as well as coins for other countries.

Following seeing coins being struck, they will also have the chance to strike their own UK coin – the perfect opportunity for someone to start or continue their coin collection.

Winning such a prestigious award at the Group Leisure & Travel Awards has been a special moment for the team at The Royal Mint Experience. As the only Welsh attraction that was shortlisted for ‘Best Guided Tour’ and up against other incredible tourist attractions across the UK, it is an honour to have The Royal Mint Experience recognised in this way. Receiving this award is a testament to our fantastic team of tour guides, a team which ensures every visit is a memorable one.”
