New Visitor Information Point Opens in Helmsley
3:49pm 22nd July 2014
Helmsley’s Visitor Information Point (VIP) is helping very important people enjoy their stay in Ryedale
The VIP opened in April 2014, in the Cut Price Bookstore in Borogate, Helmsley – providing lots of information for local people and visitors to the area.
The shop contains a range of free information leaflets as well as maps, guidebooks and post cards for visitors to purchase.
The shop offers free Wi Fi to visitors, so they can search the www.VisitRyedale.co.uk website to browse for further details, book accommodation and check attractions opening times and local events and ‘whats on’ listings.
Anne Wilson, Manager of the Cut Price Bookstore said
“Many of our customers ask about local tourist attractions and things to do, so having the VIP in the shop helps us to point them in the right direction straight away. Helmsley is such a lovely town, we want to share its treasures with all our visitors.”
Cllr Linda Cowling, Leader of Ryedale District Council, added :
“With more and more visitors using the internet to decide what to do when on holiday, often at the last minute or weather dependant, it makes sense for visitor information to be available on line as well as in person. Anne and her team are doing a great job for local businesses, promoting Helmsley and Ryedale to our visitors.”
The VIP is open 7 days a week from 9.30 to 5pm on Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4.30 pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays. (Closed Christmas Day)
