A visitor information point is to open in Rottingdean.

The Mayor of Brighton and Hove Lynda Hyde will officially open the visitor information point at Rottingdean Library, in the Grange, on Thursday afternoon (2 July).

Visit Brighton, the official tourism body for Brighton and Hove, has trained staff at the library to provide information about a range of attractions, events and facilities.

They will also provide a face-to-face welcome to the area, with the library stocking leaflets and literature, including local maps.

A selection of the library’s local history books will also be available in the room for visitors to browse through.

Visit Brighton, part of Brighton and Hove City Council, has worked with Rottingdean Trade, Business and Professional Association and Rottingdean Parish Council as well as colleagues in the library service to create the visitor information point.

Visit Brighton said that it was reaching out to the edges of the city with the opening of the visitor information point.

It is part of a network of visitor information points across Brighton and Hove and the first to be established so far from the city centre.

Councillor Adrian Morris, the new Labour administration’s lead member for tourism and arts, said: “Rottingdean is a beautiful part of the city with a rich history.

“The new visitor information point will give visitors and residents alike an original way to find out more about the village, local attractions and events coming up.

“The council is committed to supporting tourism across the city and this new service will hopefully encourage visitors to enjoy what is on offer in Rottingdean.”
