For the eighth year running Wealden District Council’s visitor attractions guide is back by popular demand.
The new 2022/23 attractions guide showcases over 80 attractions within the district offering many ‘hidden gems’ for visitors to explore.
Distribution of the guide will be to businesses within a two-and-a-half-hour drive time of the Wealden area. The guide is also sent to tourist information centres nationally. Outlets including attractions, accommodation providers, hospitality and leisure venues, as well as libraries, leisure centres, retail shops and garden centres.
In 2019 the total value of tourism was around £368 million, this included nearly half a million overnight stays and just under six million day trips. Wealden District Council wants to build on these numbers and increase the awareness of the district and maximise visitor expenditure.
Roy Galley said “The council’s investment aims to increase the number of visitors enjoying longer stays in the area, exploring our nature, places and culture. The whole area offers breath-taking and varied landscapes, ancient woodland, and stunning heathland and historical sites for everyone to enjoy”.
