What we do: Overview of our Services
We also support Eden's tourism businesses through a variety of activities.
Visit Eden website
Our destination website www.visiteden.co.uk has lots of useful information including accommodation listings (with an online booking option), attractions, eateries, walking and cycling information including routes, events, together with information on Eden's towns and villages plus lots more. The website has responsive design so can be viewed on mobile devices.
Visit our Visit Eden website webpage for more information on the website and what it offers.
We use social media to promote Eden locally and nationally via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Find out how you can get involved with us on our Social Media webpage.
Brochures, guides and leaflets still remain an important part of the holiday planning process despite the growing influence of digital media. Eden Tourism produce an annual Eden visitor guide in partnership with Bucket and Spade which has a minimum print run of 40,000 copies and is distributed via a national media campaign and to Tourist Information Centres across the country (UK). Find out how you can promote your business in the Eden visitor guide.
