Gloucester tourist centre sees more visitors

The tourist information centre in Gloucester has seen a substantial increase in visitors over the past year.

City council leader Paul James said 70,000 people had passed through the centre's doors since since April.

The figure is 17,000, more than in the same period last year.

Mr James attributed it partly to more people coming to the city. The widening of the range of services was attracting residents as well, he added.

The centre acts as a ticket agent for coaches and provides information about local events.
