ALL four Fenland towns are to get an improved tourist information centre, but the "hub" will remain in Wisbech, says Fenland District Council.
A review of tourism has concluded that a tourist information centre should be developed in March Town Hall, and in the Chatteris and Whittlesey one-stop shops.
In Wisbech, talks will now explore the possibility of moving the centre to the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum.
However, should it remain in the one stop shop, "a plan improving the layout should be developed providing a clear demarcation between the two services".
