We go to the visitor information centre often, they have a lovely little shop section for memorabilia and local gifts. We are able to book tickets there for many other attractions, this is very useful to us. The staff are always friendly and very helpful.

A well laid out centre in the old Sunday school building with plenty of story boards about the formation and running of the school in the 1800,s. There is also the usual centre shop and a coffee shop.

Hi Barbara M, Thank you for reviewing us and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to Macclesfield. It sounds like you are referring to a visit to our good neighbour Macclesfield Heritage Centre though as we are based within Macclesfield Town Hall and not the Sunday School Building. If you didn't manage to visit us this time... More

Useful information on Macclesfield, Cheshire and the Peak District. Staff are knowledgeable, although leaflets seem to be becoming rarer (financial pressure?)

I was shocked to see this listed here as a place to visit! The staff are rude and unhelpful. I have attempted to get information about local events, and directions, from them many times whilst living in Macclesfield and not once did anyone actually provide me with the information I went in for. Much better just looking on google.

The first thing people look for when visiting a town is oftne the tourist info centre. The fact that macclesfiled Tourist Info is hidden away inside the Town Hall extension says it all. Once you find it the staff are pretty poorly equipped to deal with your enquiry. Macclesfiled could be an amzing destination for tourism. Its on the cusp... More
