Anger at loss of Norwich Forum tourist information centre

The lack of a tourist information centre in Norwich has been criticised as “short-sighted” with the city opening up to visitors and staycations after the Covid lockdowns.

Norwich City Council permanently closed the centre at The Forum in April following a service review. 

The centre had been closed since December 2020 but continued as a telephone and email advisory service with the authority saying it would create a saving of around £110,000. 

A spokeswoman for the city council confirmed the authority’s stance has not changed since the closure was announced, despite the increase in footfall to Norwich.
