A useful new website has been launched that showcases the very best of Aylesbury as a place to visit.
The ‘Visit Aylesbury’ website aims to help local residents re-discover the town centre and encourage new visitors into the area by raising awareness of the town’s many attractions.
Developed by the Marketing Aylesbury Group and part-funded by Aylesbury Vale District Council, www.visitaylesbury.co.uk offers an abundance of up-to-date information to make a visit to the town an enjoyable and memorable experience.
The website includes information on entertainment, events and gigs, shopping, history and culture and places to eat and drink, as well as practical information to help your visit such as details of car parks, public transport and toilet facilities. There’ll also be special offers from town centre businesses.
It’s free for town centre businesses and events to be included on the site. Residents and visitors can sign up to a newsletter to receive information about events and offers in the town.
This is an exciting time for Aylesbury, county town of Buckinghamshire, as the focus of a multi-million pound improvement programme. The town centre has seen major change in the last five years - and there's plenty more to come including the soon-to-open University Campus Aylesbury Vale.
Councillor Angela Macpherson, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Communities and Civic Amenities, said: “There’s a lot to like about Aylesbury including a vibrant arts scene and great mix of shops and restaurants. The new website is dedicated to showcasing all the good things about the town, not just to visitors but to our own residents too.
“The council and its partners are putting their hearts into improving the area with multi-million pound redevelopment plans including new shops, housing and community facilities. We’re pleased to be working with the Marketing Aylesbury Group on the website project and contributing towards the wider promotion of the town.”
