On Monday 17 August, Lichfield District Council reopened its Visitor Information Centre, which is based in Lichfield Library in St Mary’s on the Market Square.

After closing when much of the country went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the council is reopening its Visitor Information Centre with a slightly reduced service.

The team is on hand to help with visitor enquiries, city maps and self-guided trails, National Express tickets, coach parking tickets, and tourism and events leaflets, which are available on request as an extra precaution.

A number of measures have been put in place to protect visitors and the team, including a one-way route around the building, a requirement to wear a face mask, social distancing, hand sanitiser, protective screens, and requesting that customers pay by card.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member responsible for Visitor Economy, said:

“By reopening the visitor information desk, we’re sending out a message that we are ready to welcome tourism back to the district in a safe and measured way.
 
“Our attractions and hospitality sector have worked hard to be covid-secure, many of whom have achieved the ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard, and we hope visitors will come back to the district to enjoy our many and varied attractions and help boost the local economy.”

The Visitor Information Centre is open from Monday to Saturday, between 9.30am and 4pm.
