Visitor Information Point installed at Newbury Library

A new Visitor Information Point has been installed at Newbury Library.

This easy to use device has a large touch-screen with information about places to stay and eat locally, together with links to travel websites for bus, coach and train companies and local events. 

The screen also has a map of the Town Centre and a weather forecast.

Newbury Town Council has agreed to fund the information point, as part of its wider commitment to provide a helpful service for visitors to the town. 

The information point has been placed in Newbury Library, with support from West Berkshire Council. The Library’s proximity to the new bus station means that the new Visitor Information Point will be particularly convenient for visitors to Newbury arriving by bus and coach..
