​The Centre provides information about attractions, events and the local area

Bedford Visitor Information Centre (VIC) will be moving to a new home in Bedford Central Library from March this year.

The VIC is a volunteer-run organisation working to promote Bedford to both visitors and residents. It provides information about attractions, events and the local area.

Since its launch in St Paul’s Church in October 2018, the VIC has welcomed nearly 2,000 people to the VIC.

From March, this service will be moving to the ground floor foyer of Bedford Central Library. The move will give the VIC a larger space for displays and information.

Steve Barratt, from the Visitor Information Centre, said:

“We are very grateful to all the team at St. Paul’s Church, without whose help and support the VIC would not exist. We look forward to the move to Bedford Central Library, and to working with the team at the library to expand and improve the service we can provide for residents and visitors.”

Cllr Doug McMurdo, portfolio holder for Leisure and Culture, said:

“Bedford Central Library is delighted to welcome the Visitor Information Centre. The Library is already a fantastic hub for activities, events and organisations in the town and we look forward to working with the VIC promoting our area.”

The VIC will be open in the Library from early March on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 4pm.
