Buckingham Town Council has announced the launch of Buckingham’s new website for visitors and tourists, www.discoverbuckingham.uk. Buckingham Tourist Information Centre reopened on the 4th July.
Buckingham Town Council have said they are committed to helping Buckingham based businesses through this difficult time and to ensure Buckingham is fully open for business. They hope the new website will encourage people to come to the town to shop, dine, stay and visit the numerous attractions in and around Buckingham.
The TIC have said they are proud to continue its tradition of being the first point of call for Tourism and promoting the Buckingham economy and attractions in the surrounding areas. This year Buckingham will have had a Tourist Information Centre in the town for 25 years. The council have said that a knowledgeable team will be on hand to discuss everything that you need to do locally and have a wide range of tickets for sale for major events in the area. The TIC was taken on by the Town Council in 2018, in response to research indicating that The Town Council could provide it more cheaply and with better local connections than had been possible for Tourism South East. An increase in ticket sales was also reported. This summer, the TIC will be on Sundays for the first time, in response to the number of visitors to the town seeking advice and information over the weekend.
The new Discover Buckingham website will have business listings for local shops, accommodation, restaurants, pubs and attractions as well as event listings, blogs and news from around Buckingham.
The Old Gaol Museum remains closed at this time.
Councillor Robin Stuchbury, chair of the Town Centre and Events Committee, said:
“I’m very pleased That Buckingham Town Council officers working in conjunction with members of the Economic Development Working Group are continuing to promote Buckingham through the Tourist Information Centre.The provision on this new website, which was created in-house, is another part of the Council’s positive journey to develop the promotion of Buckingham’s appeal for tourists and businesses both within Buckinghamshire and nationally.”
