Further improvements have been made to the award winning information service that’s available to the visitors of Thanet.
The first 12 new Key Information Points have now been installed across the district, so that visitors and local residents can easily pick up information, such as the 2010 visitor guide, the beaches and bays guide, information about the Viking Coastal Trail and bus and train timetables.
The points also have details of how to contact the council’s Visitor Information team, who were highly commended in the regional awards for Tourist Information Service of the year and were awarded the Team of the Year in 2010's Pride in Thanet Tourism Awards. Some of the more prominent locations also have additional signage and information available.
The Key Information Points can be found at:
· The Broadstairs Information Kiosk at Lillyputt Minigolf, Victoria Parade, Broadstairs
· Bandstand Kiosk, Victoria Gardens, Broadstairs
· Crampton Tower Museum, The Broadway, Broadstairs
· Customs House, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate
· Dickens House Museum, Victoria Parade, Broadstairs
· Granville Theatre and Cinema, Victoria Parade, Ramsgate
· Harbour Office, Harbour Street, Broadstairs
· Harbour Office, Military Road, Ramsgate
· Kent International Airport, Main terminal building, Manston
· Ramsgate District Office, York Street, Ramsgate
· Royal Albion Hotel, Albion Street, Broadstairs
· Waterstone’s Book Shop, Westwood Cross

Cllr. Martin Wise, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, said: “The council’s Visitor Information team have been doing a huge amount of work over the past few months to increase the amount of information available to visitors across Thanet. Following the closure of the VIC in Ramsgate and the changes in Broadstairs, we knew that would leave a gap and the new Key Information Points are just one of the ways that we’re tackling that. The aim is to ensure that there is plenty of visitor information available in each of our towns.”

There are plans to increase the number of Key Information Points in the future. If you would be interested in one at your business, please contact Nick Watts on 01843 577577 or e-mail
