The people working here are very polite and informative. They also have brochures for many activities as well as simple guide books. I would suggest stopping in even if you have a good guide book.

This was well worth a visit for first timers like us to the city. An informative map was only 50p and the assistant was very helpful with advice.

Not much to say about the visitor center. Good exchange rates for dollars, nice and friendly staff, surprisingly cheap souvenir shop.

Centrally located and near many attractions in the city. A little small and if full can get very crowded.

Hello, there isn't left luggage service at the train station, but there is at the Visitor Information Centre on Broad Street, about 10 minutes' walk away. It is available 7 days a week, in the centre's opening hours.
