The Visitor Information Centre was previously known as the Tourist Information Centre and was operating out of a temporary location on Freeman Street.

However their new site opened to the public on Friday and will be open between 10am and 5pm throughout the summer.

The new Visitor Information Centre will also serve as the box office for events at Wells Maltings and tickets for Wells Carnival, which begins on Friday July 27, can also be bought from there.

The £5 million Maltings will open officially in September and hopes to serve as a new community hub for theatre, film, heritage and art in North Norfolk.

The building is a former 19th century malt house on Staithe Street, which has been greatly extended and refurbished over the past two years to create a new community hub.

Several events will take place at the venue before its official launch in September. For more information visit www.wellsmaltings.org.uk.
