Axminster Information Point,(AIP)


The Tourist Information Centre (TIC)

is located inside the

Axminster Heritage Centre, (AHC)

situated in the middle of the town, just along Silver Street from Trinity Square.



Our special Interact page has frequent news and updates from groups and pages on Social Media of relevance to both visitors and locals.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, England is currently in Lockdown.

Therefore, Axminster Heritage Centre is closed to the public until further notice.

Please note that due social distancing and the Museums one way system It will not possible to access the leaflets at the Information point.



We have been following government and museum sector guidelines closely on reopening and are at present preparing the building to be COVID-19 compliant. Our priority is to provide a safe environment for both our visitors and volunteers and as such there will be some changes in the visitor experience such as a queuing system and a one-way route through the exhibitions.

Our interactives will not be operating in the displays but you will still be able to access the audios and videos in the gallery using your own mobile device and phones. More about this and how to download the QR code readers will be available on our website and Facebook page nearer our opening.

These changes will allow us to ensure that the Heritage Centre remains a safe, friendly and informative place for everyone.
