Waft Tourist Information's visitor walks prove boring yet dangerous for two newlyweds. Stars Jeff Rawle. From November 2009.

Waft Tourist Information introduces local walks for visitors but for the young honeymooning couple, the walks end up being painfully boring and spectacularly dangerous!

Neil Warhurst's comedy about the idiosyncratic world of Tourist Information Offices.

Jeff Rawle stars as Warren, the much put upon manager of Waft Tourist Information. The ancient northern town of Waft appears in the Lonely Planet Guide with the advice: "Don't bother". It has more people in the cemetery than living in it, is twinned with a town near Chernobyl and is most often visited by people using the toilet on the way to Alton Towers. So Waft Tourist Information Centre is hardly a hive of activity! But Warren along with the other members of the "Friends of Waft" each week attempt to solve the endless conundrum of how on earth they can attract visitors to Waft!
