From 1 April 2012, Salisbury City Council will be providing a new service in the City as it takes over the ownership of Salisbury’s Tourist Information Centre in Fish Row.
The Tourist Information Centre located at the rear of the Guildhall - also owned by the City Council - will continue to deliver a wide range of services and goods to both British and international visitors and locals who need information on the City and surrounding area.
Reg Williams, City Clerk said, “We are looking forward to taking on this new venture for Salisbury City Council. The centre provides a valuable service for overseas visitors who visit our City and surrounding area, and also helps an increasing number of British visitors who have chosen to stay in the UK for their holidays and short breaks."
The centre not only provides accommodation and visitor services but sells tickets on behalf of a number of venues and attractions such as; National Express, Rail tickets, Salisbury Playhouse, Salisbury International Arts Festival and many more.
As part of the transfer from Wiltshire Council, the City Council will need to exchange IT and telephone equipment and some services will be unavailable during this exchange. It is hoped that normal services will continue during the first few days in April, however please be aware that there may be a few delays at this time.
