New era for tourist information in Tiverton
12:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in News
TIVERTON’S new tourist information service will be officially opened by Sir Ian Amory today (October 11).
Staff from the old centre in Phoenix Lane moved to their new home at the Museum of Mid Devon Life in Beck’s Square on October 1.
Curator Pippa Griffith said: “We are selling coach tickets for Berry’s, National Express and Stagecoach and are already doing a good trade in those. We were very keen to be up and running with the coach tickets first as it is such an important service for our local community.
“We will be developing our services to include tickets for shows and attractions in due course.
“The new service obviously adds another dimension to the services that the museum offers, and we are all very excited about it and are enjoying the extra activity that it gives our reception and shop.
“We’ve had some very positive reactions from members of the public, and we’ll continue to offer the best possible service to both local people and visitors to the area.”
The team are also hoping to have new signs put up on the outside of the building to advertise the new information point as well as notice boards to promote local events.
They will be celebrating at 3pm today with a Devon cream tea.
Meanwhile, the former Tiverton Information Centre is available to rent and is being marketed by commercial agent Thorne and Carter.
