Whether you are a local or a visitor, you can be sure of the best advice at East Devon's Tourist Information Centres (TICs). TICs are run by friendly, experienced staff who know the local area really well and often have extra knowledge you won't find in guide books. The centres don't just provide information, they also offer a wide range of services, and are able to help you with:
  • Where to stay - all TICs can book accommodation
  • Places to visit throughout the whole area
  • What's on - they all maintain a diary of local events
  • Where to eat and drink

Most TICs can offer:

  • Information on holidays throughout Britain.
  • Sale of tickets for local events or for local and even London theatres
  • Public transport information, timetables and maps
  • Guided walks and tours
