Royston Information Centre has been created by Royston First, and is dedicated to providing high quality visitor information as well as concentrating on promoting tourism in our town.
Visitors can discover what there is to see and do in Royston and test their knowledge of Royston’s history using the new touchscreen interactive quiz. There’s even a mock up of some of the carvings that can be seen in Royston Cave.
A series of new promotional materials have been created, which include town centre maps, a comprehensive Clubs and Associations guide and an Accommodation guide to the town, which sit alongside other useful publications such as the Town Trail and the history of Royston Cave.
This pioneering partnership between Royston First and Hertfordshire Libraries has enabled Royston Library to open its doors again on a Thursday from 10am-1pm for the first time in several years. On the first Thursday alone, 60 visitors came through the door.
Overseeing delivery of the project on behalf of Royston First, the trustees of the Royston Cave, and Hertfordshire Libraries, the Town Manager, Geraint Burnell, said: “The assistance we have received from our partners has been excellent and between us we’ve achieved not only a new resource for Royston, but also an extension of Library opening hours. We now have a focal point from which visitors can set out to explore our town … and we are now looking to actively promote Royston to a wider audience. We have a number of other activities ‘on the go’ which will further add value to the Royston Information Centre.”
