THERE will be eight new tourist information sites in Ross-on-Wye based at existing businesses in the town.

The newly formed Ross-on-Wye Tourism Association (RTA) wants to boost tourism in the market town and has provided strategically placed information points.

Window posters will identify the eight locations where visitors will find a town map, leaflets, event information and lists of accommodation.

RTA spokeswoman Yolande Watson said: “This is just the beginning of an intensive drive to increase visitor numbers and publicise just what a lovely place Ross-on-Wye is to visit and a perfect centre from where to explore the local area."

The eight locations are:

  • Ross Information Service in Corn Exchange, High Street;
  • Made in Ross (first floor of the Market House);
  • Mandy Moo’s, Cantilupe Road;
  • Return to Splendour, Gloucester Road;
  • Hope Treasures cafe next to the Hope and Anchor:
