The Bude Visitor Centre which opened on the 16th July 1993 is an excellent point of reference for all visitors to the Bude area and provides a full service networked to the English Tourism Council. Our friendly staff will be delighted to help you plan your holiday and find out more about the area. By carefully assessing your requirements and interests the staff will ensure you have the very best information to make your holiday a real success.

The Centre has hundreds of brochures on attractions, activities, walks, history trails and more, and offers a postal service on some publications. We have an extensive stock of maps, books, postcards, gifts, toys and stamps for sale including a range of solid pewter Celtic jewellery and quality Cornish branded gifts.

There are fascinating displays by the Heritage Coast Service. A Fax and Answer-phone service is available 24 hours a day. We will be happy to send a free information pack or, for a minimal charge, we can tailor this for your own specific interests and needs. Our new Town & Country guide is also available.
