South Lakeland set for new tourist information centres
Bookmark and Share
New tourist information centres are set to be established as part of a £375,000 investment by South Lakeland council.

The authority covers part of the Lake District National Park and those planning to go walking in the area could be able to find out more about places to explore once the new centres are opened.

Under the plan, the first new facilities will be paid for with a start-up fund of £150,000 in the first year, with the next three years seeing £100,000, £75,000 and £50,000 respectively being spent on the project.

While many people find their tourist information online, the new centres will still be useful for many visitors, according to Councillor Graham Vincent.

He said: "We accept not everyone has or uses the internet and that some visitors will always prefer face-to-face visitor information."

Walkers in south Lakeland might wish to put their backpacks on and visit places such as the Orrest Head viewpoint in Windermere, a hill affording panoramic views down the full ten- and-a-half-miles of the lake's length, as well as mountain scenery such as the Langdale Pikes.
