The tourist office is on whitesands in the centre of Dumfries, by the river and you get to it through a very small courtyard. (It is signposted).The staff are extremely helpful, and as with all tourist offices, there are numerous leaflets and displays about local interests - small gift shop on the premises too.
They give out free maps of Dumfries if you need one, and the maps themselves are easy to read and understand. Also have post cards of the local area which is useful, as not always easy to find in Dumfries.
I remember the much smaller tourist office in the middle of town so I was amazed by this vast improvement when I was back in Dumfries a week ago. It's really huge and full of beautiful things - gifts, cards, crafts, maps, an exquisite tapestry hanging along one wall. There are interactive displays as well and everything is very eye-catching and enticing. The staff there were friendly and helpful. I go into tourist information centres in every town I visit and this has to be one of the best - if not THE best I've come across!!!
