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 an accommodation listing (with an online booking option). It also features attractions, eateries, walking and cycling information including cycle routes and events. There is also information on Eden's towns and villages plus lots more. The website has responsive design so can be viewed on mobile devices.
For more information on how to promote your business visit our Advertising section.
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. We produce an annual Eden visitor guide in partnership with Bucket and Spade. The guide 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.
We have also produced a complete set of free "Do in a Day" Eden cycling leaflets for Penrith, Ullswater, Alston and the North Pennines and Appleby and Kirkby Stephen. The leaflets are available from local Tourist Information Centres and on our website.
We produce a complete set of town mini guides for Penrith, Appleby, Kirkby Stephen, Orton/Tebay and Alston. These are available from local Tourist Information Centres.
