Celebrate English Tourism Week in Lancaster and Morecambe Bay

Lancaster City Council is celebrating English Tourism Week with the launch of new set of visitor leaflets for Lancaster and Morecambe Bay and a special tour of Lancaster Town Hall.

Celebrate English Tourism Week

This year's English Tourism Week runs from March 30 to April 7 and is an annual celebration giving tourism organisations up and down the country a chance to arrange special events to showcase unique visitor experiences in England.

The Morecambe Bay and Lancaster visitor leaflets complete with at-a-glance guides to events and attractions in the area and easy to read map have been produced to showcase the vibrant history and culture of the city of Lancaster and the coastal beauty of Morecambe Bay.

In addition to these being distributed across the region’s hotels, attractions and eating places ready for Easter and the forthcoming visitor season, they are also available from town halls and visitor information centres in Lancaster and Morecambe now or to download at www.visitlancaster.org.uk or www.exploremorecambebay.org.uk

Town hall tour and cream tea

During English Tourism Week, Lancaster Town Hall will be opening its doors for a special tour of the building.  The event will include a special visit to the Queen Victoria statue in Dalton Square to celebrate 200 years since her birth. Afterwards guests will be able to indulge in a traditional English cream tea in the town hall’s magnificent Mayor's Parlour.  The tour takes place on Thursday, April 4 at 1pm.

Commenting on the importance of English Tourism Week, Mark McTigue of the council's tourism marketing team, said: “The aim of the week is to raise awareness of the value of England’s tourism industry which in the Lancaster district supports 6,000 jobs and is worth £476M. People come from all over the country and beyond to enjoy what the district has to offer and this is expected to increase further if key developments like the Eden Project North come to fruition."
