Welcome to the official website of the Woolacombe & Mortehoe Tourist Information Centre
We are open for business and ready to
welcome you to Woolacombe & Mortehoe!
Car parks and toilet facilities are all open, as are most shops and eateries, albeit with some changes to the way in which they are operating. Lifeguards are patrolling the beach daily until the end of September, then weekends only during October (back on duty every day for our October half-term!).
Please be aware that you my need to be more organised than normal during your visit – you may need to book table in your favourite eatery in advance (some are takeaway only), or book time slots for attractions. We are keeping up to date listings at the TIC – we recommend emailing us about a week before your visit and we can send our Food & Drink listing, and Attractions and Activities listing to you to help plan your trip. Note, the information is constantly changing, so if we send it too far in advance, it may be completely different by the time you get here! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a query – we will do all we can to assist. Our current opening times our 10am-4pm daily (we are running on reduced staff so your patience would be appreciated – thank you).
