We are still looking at how we can attract additional coach parties to the town and now have a date for our ‘Coach Friendly’ audit. The assessors will be coming on the 14th March to see if we meet the requirements, achieving this status will help to elevate our profile as a coach tour destination.
We believe that our traditional feeder town of Torquay is now running fewer coach excursions than in previous years and that Looe may be a new source of potential day-trippers. We are therefore looking at how we can promote Tavistock in the Looe area and the tour companies that are operating in this area.
We are also working with the council to investigate how we can incentivise tour operators and coach operators to come to Tavistock.
