A pub and history tour will take place in Hertfordshire’s county town this weekend as part of English Tourism Week 2017.

Hertford Town Council has teamed up with Peter Berthoud, who will be leading a very special four-hour tour around the town on Saturday, April 1 from noon.

Tickets for the pub and history walk can be bought at Hertford Town & Tourist Information Centre for £25.

The town council runs Hertford Town & Tourist Information Centre, at its new location in The Wash, opposite Hertford Theatre.

Councillor Jane Sartin, chairman of Hertford Town Council’s development and leisure committee, said: “Hertford Town & Tourist Information Centre provides a wealth of information on places to visit both locally and further afield, so attracts many visitors looking for places to visit in the area.

“The Town Council is pleased to be taking part in this national celebration of all that Hertfordshire and the rest of England has to offer to tourists.”

A VisitEngland initiative, English Tourism Week is a celebration of the vibrancy and quality of England’s visitor attractions where tourism businesses are encouraged to get involved to kick-start the season.

During the week, which runs until April 2, Hertford Town Council will run a social media campaign using the national hashtag #ETW17 to raise awareness about the county town, its heritage and attractions.

There will also be competitions daily with prizes ranging from event tickets and vouchers to an overnight hotel stay.

Hertford Town Council would like to thank sponsors of the week’s events – McMullen & Sons, Hertford House Hotel, Lee & Stort Boats, Lussmanns, Salisbury Arms Hotel, Loch Fyne and Peter Berthoud.

To get involved in the campaign, and to be in with a chance to win some excellent prizes, follow Hertford Town Council on Twitter and Facebook and use hashtags #ETW17 and #Hertford
