Free tour of Bury St Edmunds for English Tourism Week...

Enjoy a free tour of Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 21 March at 2pm. The tour is being organised by the town’s tour guides, as a way of encouraging local people to find out more about their town and as a herald to the new tourism season. Although the tour is free of charge, people are encouraged to book via the Cathedral Tourist Information Point on Angel Hill. The tour, which will last about 1 ½ hours, starts from the Cathedral Tourist Information Point.

 

English Tourism Week 2015 is a week-long celebration of events from 14 -22 March showcasing the quality and vibrancy of the visitor experiences and the value the industry brings to our nation.

 

‘Bury St Edmunds has a rich and vibrant history, and often, as local residents, we do not see what is on our doorsteps,’ comments Sarah Friswell, who manages the team of volunteers who operate the Cathedral Tourist Information Point. ‘We are looking forward to another busy year in the town, with many visitors coming to enjoy all the town’s amenities. English Tourism helps to showcase the great things we have available.’

 

Moyses’ Hall Museum is also offering a free tour of the building and its collections on Saturday 14 March at 2 pm for the first 20 people to book. Please book directly at Moyses’ Hall or at the Cathedral Tourist Information Point.

 

The tourism sector touches everyone – visitors, residents and employees. It’s one of the few sectors active in every part of the country. It’s the third largest employer, every day supporting 2.6 million jobs and providing a significant source of employment for those unable to work full-time. It's a major employer of school leavers and young people and is an incubator for entrepreneurs.

 

The visitor economy is worth £106bn a year to England supporting thousands of businesses and seriously impacting on the performance of supplier industries including farming, transport, retailing, sport, museums and galleries, the theatre and other performing arts.
