A new look destination website to promote Wealden
Media Release : 11 October 2011
The Enjoy Sussex Partnership, comprising of Lewes, Horsham, Mid Sussex and Wealden District Councils, has unveiled a new improved website, www.enjoysussex.info , designed to attract more domestic and international visitors to the region.
Covering an area stretching west to east from Pulborough to Heathfield, and north to south from Horsham to Birling Gap, Enjoy Sussex promotes the breathtaking natural beauty of the region's coast and countryside as well as charming character, quality accommodation, great days out and unique events.
"The tourist industry is one of the biggest employers in our District," said Councillor Roy Galley, Cabinet Member for Planning and Development. "By working with our neighbouring councils through the Enjoy Sussex Partnership, we have been able to create a top-notch website to woo more visitors to the District and encourage them to spend more time with us."
The revamped www.enjoysussex.info offers visitors from around the world a wealth of essential information on where to stay and what to see and do in this beautiful part of rural Sussex. Designed to complement the annual printed Enjoy Sussex Visitor and Accommodation Guide, the website establishes the region as the perfect destination for a day visit, relaxing short break or a longer holiday.
Visitors to the new website can browse or search an extensive range of quality assessed accommodation options as well as reserving and booking online. The website contains information on the very best days out and the wide range of quality visitor attractions Enjoy Sussex has to offer.
Up-to-date information on local events, detailed area maps and information on towns and villages also feature as well as suggestions of what to see and do in the newly designated South Downs National Park.
The website contains comprehensive travel and transport information, and with excellent transport links and central London stations accessible in under one hour, the Enjoy Sussex area makes an ideal base for those attending the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games.
The Partnership's ongoing social media activities will continue to complement the website with regular updates on the Enjoy Sussex Facebook page as well as the @enjoysussex Twitter profile, which now features as a direct link Twitter feed on the homepage of the new website.
Tourism plays an essential role in maintaining a successful and buoyant local economy. The redesigned user-friendly website is just one of the measures local authorities are offering to ensure that new and repeat visitors continue to visit the area, generating vital revenue and supporting local jobs.
