For Visitors and Local Residents…

  • Holiday Information: available on most towns and areas in England, Scotland and Wales, especially on accommodation and places to visit.

  • Local Information: we keep information on local attractions, up to date bus and rail timetables, a list of organisations, clubs and societies, and act as a box office for local events, including Saffron Screen (Saffron Walden’s Community Cinema).

  • Accommodation: we provide an accommodation booking service for visitors, and through the Book-a-Bed-Ahead (BABA) Scheme, in conjunction with other participating Tourist Information Centres, we can book accommodation two to three days in advance in most parts of the United Kingdom.

  • What’s On: our What’s On booklet of events in and around the Uttlesford District is published every two months (25p). It is not only useful to visitors and local residents, but also for local organisations to publicise their forthcoming events.

  • Guide Books & Souvenirs: we have a good selection of books and maps for sale, particularly on local history, walks and attractions, and also tasteful souvenirs, many of which have been exclusively produced for us.
