Bristol Tourist Information Centre moves to a new home

By lowie trevena, Thursday Jul 9, 2020

Bristol’s Tourist Information Centre has moved to the ground floor of the Galleries.

Previously located next to the Watershed, the information centre had to move because of the cinema’s planned expansion.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday, the information hub offer services for both visitors to the city and for people who live in Bristol, such as help with public transport, as well as stocking themed gifts and souvenirs.

The shop has reopened following the easing of lockdown, with measures put in place to keep the store as safe as possible, including PPE for staff, contactless payments and a limit to the number of people allowed inside.

“I am delighted that we have managed to find a new home for the Tourist Information Centre in the Galleries during what has been a difficult time for everybody,” says John Hirst, chief executive of Destination Bristol, which runs the tourist information centre. “We look forward to welcoming visitors and locals to the new location.”

The store is selling locally made products, including mugs, jewellery, t-shirts, books and maps, all of which are available through the Bristol Tourist Information Centre’s website.

Visitors and locals can also buy bus tickets, get keys for the city’s accessible toilets and find out about recently reopened attractions throughout Bristol and beyond.
