New webpages showcasing the best of the Shotley Peninsula have been launched, offering visitors top tips, deals and event information for their trip.
The new webpages, hosted and designed by All About Ipswich (AAI) and funded by Babergh District Council, aim to make planning a visit to the Shotley Peninsula easier than ever, and can be visited at: www.allaboutipswich.com/highlights/theshotleypeninsula
The new webpages are part of a drive by Babergh and All About Ipswich to provide marketing support for the Shotley Peninsula Tourism Action Group, with an aim of promoting the unique experiences available on the peninsula. Local businesses are being invited to provide details that can be listed on the website, providing visitors with information on all the peninsula has to offer.
Designed in consultation with the Shotley Peninsula Tourism Action Group, which was originally founded by Babergh District Council, visitors can find details on upcoming events, top attractions and even on money saving deals on the new webpages.
The Shotley Peninsula includes areas of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, drawing in a large number of visitors. All businesses on the Shotley Peninsula are being offered subsidized membership of AAI, including content on the AAI website, social media and PR work: any businesses interested can find out more by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Leader of Babergh District Council, Councillor John Ward said: “We have some outstanding destinations in Babergh, drawing in visitors from across the country and abroad. But while our wool towns such as Lavenham and our artists are well known, the beauty and history of the Shotley Peninsula sometimes feels like a well-kept secret. These webpages will help spread the word, and let us share the Peninsula with many more visitors, whether they’re walking the Arthur Ransome trail, sailing from the marinas on the Orwell or sampling local food and drink in Wherstead. The Peninsula is a wonderful destination and I hope many more visitors have the chance to enjoy it.”
Jack Cripps from All About Ipswich said: "We're really excited to be working with the Shotley Peninsula TAG to promote our region of Suffolk; the Peninsula is a beautiful part of our county that is full of surprises that we cannot wait to start sharing. Ipswich and the Shotley Peninsula are very different places but by working together we can create interesting and unique stories that attract visitors and tourists whilst inspiring residents to explore and love Suffolk."
Oliver Paul from the Suffolk Food Hall and Chair of the Shotley Peninsula TAG said: “The collaboration of businesses with local agencies, continues to enthuse those who visit the peninsula as well as residents enjoying this corner of Suffolk. This is a fantastic new website facilitated through the AAI partnership, giving tourist providers a dedicated resource and visitors a consolidated view to further inspire all.”
