Visitor Information Centre
As part of the Guildhall Gateway Project we've reopened Tavistock's Visitor Information Centre! For the next few years, the VIC will be located at Court Gate in Bedford Square, right in the historic centre of town. Once work on the Guildhall is completed, however, the VIC will move into its new home in the renovated building.
The new visitor information service is entirely run by volunteers from the local community, allowing us to both minimise the running costs and draw upon the volunteers' love and knowledge of the local area. Although the project receives some support from both Tavistock Town Council and West Devon Borough Council, the centre also needs to generate the revenue needed to cover its costs. The VIC therefore sells a range of retail products (including local produce) as well as tickets for our guided heritage walks and for local attractions.
