The Blackburn Visitor Centre is now open for business after moving into a new location on Salford.

The popular centre has moved just across the road from its former Church Street home to 3-5 Salford, in the former environment services one-stop shop.

The centre receives more than 200,000 visitor enquiries each year and is the first stop for anyone looking to make the most of a visit to the area.

It also has a fantastic selection of gifts, books and souvenirs with a distinctive Lancashire feel.

Councillor Alan Cottam, executive member for regeneration, said: “Blackburn Visitor Centre is a vital part of the town centre, providing a wealth of tourist and travel information for visitors to and residents of Blackburn.

“I’m confident it will go from strength to strength, whilst in this location just across the road from the £66m Mall development. It will continue to support and promote local tourism businesses and services right across Pennine Lancashire before a planned move into the new market development next year.”

Opening hours are: Monday – Friday 9-5pm and Saturday 9.30-4pm. Closed Sundays and bank holidays.

The telephone number remains (01254) 688040.

Signs have been put up at the old Church Street building (set to become Blackburn Rovers’ new Oneroverstore) redirecting customers to the new location.
