Chesterfield Borough Council is pleased to announce that the Visitor Information Centre will reopen to the public from Monday 24 August.
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, a number of measures have been introduced to ensure that the building is Covid-19 secure. These include new screens in front of desks, a limit on the number of people allowed in at once, a socially distanced queuing system outside and a hand sanitisation station at the entrance. Visitors are also required to wear a face covering inside the building unless exempt.
Councillor Kate Sarvent, cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy, said:
“The team have worked really hard behind the scenes to ensure that everything is safe for customers to return. The centre provides a number of key services including selling car parking scratch cards and coach tickets but is also a great source of information on attractions and places to visit for anyone planning their staycation in Derbyshire.”
Some leaflets and posters have been removed but staff will be able to provide up to date information about places to visit, local bus and train times and performances at Chesterfield Theatres. The gift shop inside the centre will also reopen but browsing time will be limited.
The Visitor Information Centre will be open from 9.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. These times may be subject to change and any updates will be published on the Visitor Information Centre website and social media pages. The centre will be closed on Monday 31 August due to the Bank Holiday.

To avoid queues outside, it is possible for customers to access some services provided at the Visitor Information Centre, including scratch card parking and National Express bookings, over the phone by calling 01246 345777.
