The Visit Totnes Tourist Information Centre in the Market Square has now closed for winter after a
busy summer season. Open from April to the end of October, the team responded to nearly 2,900
enquiries for information on things to do in Totnes, including places to stay or eat, local walks, boat
trips and family activities. Of the total 2,878 enquiries, 2,616 were in-person visits to the information
centre. The number of enquiries in person, on the phone and via email was higher than 2021’s figure
Cllr Emily Price, Mayor of Totnes said: “The visitor economy is tremendously important to our town,
helping us to buck the downward trend experienced by many high-streets and instead thrive.
Following a challenging couple of years thanks to COVID, it’s been great to see overseas visitors
returning to our town as well as an influx of staycationers and local day-trippers. The Town Council is
committed to supporting our local businesses by promoting tourism. Through a dedicated website,
social media, printed leaflets and maps, events, and our tourist information office we are working
hard to increase visitor numbers.”
The Information Centre will reopen at the start of April 2023 but essential, up-to-date visitor
information is still available online at www.visittotnes.co.uk and at the various information displays
around the town.
