Lichfield’s visitor information centre has reopened following the coronavirus closure.

The service has been back in place since Monday (17th August) at the centre based in Lichfield Library.

Visitors are able to access information around travel tickets, tourism information and maps and self-guided trails.

Among the measures introduced are a one-way route around the building, protective screens and a request for customers to wear face masks and pay by card.

Cllr Iain Eadie, cabinet member responsible for visitor economy at Lichfield District Council, 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.”

Cllr Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council

The visitor information centre is open from Monday to Saturday, between 9.30am and 4pm.
