We, at HistoricPhilippines, are quite excited about having been granted permission by Britain Express, The UK Travel and Heritage Guide to use their Heritage Rating System and we are very pleased to introduce it today.
Here’s what David McGruther, a founding partner of Britain Express Limited, had to say, recently, when he launched the system he developed for Britain Express:
“You are probably familiar with accommodation rating systems, like the star ratings for hotels.
That’s all very well, but what about historic attractions? Wouldn’t it be really nifty if there was a similar system to help gauge the historic interest of towns, villages, stately homes, historic buildings, castles, and so on?
Well there is now!
Its called the Britain Express Heritage Rating. The heritage rating is NOT a reflection of the quality of the attraction, nor a review of a visit! It is a very subjective assessment of the historic interest of an attraction”.
We have re-christened it as the HP Heritage Ratings and here’s what they will look like:
The actual rating for a church or other facility we visit will be placed at the top left of the page immediately above the locator map and will look just as pictured above.
As always, we’d be happy to receive your comments on the ratings system and the ratings we assign to the various churches and other historical properties we visit.
