A new tourism website promoting Harwich and Dovercourt as a tourism destination has gone live. The www.historicharwich.co.uk site provides visitors with details of events, places to eat and stay, and things to do, in the town.
The new website was previewed at the Mayflower 400 conference held earlier this month, encouraging local businesses to #GetOnBoard2020 and be involved with celebrations and events in the town marking the 400th anniversary since The Mayflower set sail for America.
Paul Milsom, chairman of the Harwich and Dovercourt Tourism Group, said having a modern website was vital for any area.
“I think we all understand the importance of a good website these days, and I know that our new Historic Harwich site will be the envy of many towns and cities,” he said.
“It will prove a valuable tool in encouraging tourists to visit the area, by providing them with a whole range of information from things to see and do and where to stay, as well as the weather and tide times. The town is indebted to the Harwich Haven Authority and its chief executive officer Neil Glendinning who sponsored the website, without their help the tourism group wouldn’t have been able to build the site for the town.
“We also now have the capability to update it almost instantly, and also to involve the whole town in it – so that we can all benefit from its success.
“As Harwich and Dovercourt gears up for the Mayflower 2020 celebrations, and looks to create a legacy far beyond that, this website can help us to bring all of that together.”
