Visitor Information Centre

Tavistock Visitor Information Centre is open Tuesday-Saturday each week between 10am and 4pm

For visitor information send us an email at, ring us on 01822 612938, or visit us in person at Court Gate in Bedford Square!

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 will also need to generate the revenue needed to cover its costs. The VIC will therefore sell a range of retail products (including local produce) as well as tickets for our guided heritage walks and for local attractions.

Want to help? Become a Friend of Tavistock VIC!

As you might expect, this is a large and challenging project, and we would be grateful for any help you can offer us! If you'd like to support us, why not become a Friend of Tavistock VIC for just £10 a year? Every penny goes towards meeting the expenses of the VIC, ensuring this invaluable resource becomes a permanent fixture in the town.

Friends membership is open both to local businesses and to individuals! Business Friends will receive:

  • A listing on our website (see below!)

  • Regular recognition on our social media accounts.

  • An entry on the Thank You Board in the VIC itself.

For individuals, we'll offer you 20% off our Guided Heritage Walks! We're also looking into adding more ways to thank you for your support - check back soon.
