Tourism is the 'life blood' of the City. 'Ambassadors' wearing sashes will be in the Market Place and on the Cathedral Green to welcome visitors, hand out maps and point out the attractions of the City. Coaches will only be met if they let us know date and time of arrival. This should be handled by the existing team dependent on numbers.
We now wish to extend this to all visitors to Wells
Greeting and making visitors as welcome as possible to the City. Training will be given and the main attractions – Cathedral, Palace, Museum, Alms Houses, Town Hall, Bishop's Barn, Vicars Close, St. Cuthberts etc - will be asked to give 10 points (more or less) for Ambassadors to share. Maps will be given out.
Why get involved?
As stated, tourism is the 'life blood' of the City and Ambassadors will make a huge contribution to visitors’ enjoyment and knowledge. Many miss Vicars' Close and can be seen taking photos of St. Cuthberts thinking it's the Cathedral! Feedback on those helped is hugely rewarding.
