This year Buckingham celebrates the 27th anniversary of the Buckingham Tourist Information Centre and with hundreds of visitors through the doors each year, the Centre provides an invaluable service to both residents and tourists. Located inside the Buckingham Old Gaol, it is the perfect place to start if you want to find out about Buckingham’s past and present. The office is open Monday – Saturday 10 AM – 4 PM and opens on Sundays in August. Our Town Centre Manager and friendly team are here to help provide advice and guidance to visitors. Below is a quick round-up of the services we can offer:
Visitor attractions and guides to the best things to do – information and tickets for local events – useful accommodation advice – food and drink recommendations – heritage information – wide range of maps, guides, and brochures – transport and travel advice – National Express bookings – Theatre Tokens – advice and background information on surrounding villages and towns – information about local shops – UK holiday destinations and a range of local produce and gifts to purchase in the shop.
As well as supervising the Tourist Information Team, the Town Centre Manager is busy building relationships with local businesses and regional tourism leads; our common goal is to attract, engage and delight more visitors to Buckingham, as well as to help boost the economy within the town. The Discover Buckingham website has business listings for shops, accommodation, restaurants, pubs, and attractions including event listings, blogs, and news from around Buckingham. If you have an event or own retail premises that you would like to add to this website for free, please email email@example.com and we will be happy to help.
The Chair of the Town Centre & Events Committee, Cllr. Robin Stuchbury, said: “The Tourist Information Centre has been an important asset in promoting Buckingham as a town of interest for tourism but also in promoting local businesses, therefore supporting its local economy.
Thanks to careful financial management, the professionalism of its staff and innovative approaches used (especially via social media platforms and the new website) the Tourist Information Centre holds a strong position within North Buckinghamshire and looks forward to strengthening further its relationships and links with local stakeholders such as the Buckingham University but also regional partners such as the Buckinghamshire Council”.
