News: New website to showcase Rotherham tourism

By

A website acting as the new official visitor guide for Rotherham has been officially launched.

www.VisitRotherham.com aims to bring together information for people wanting to visit the area, inform Rotherham residents of interesting places to visit that they may not have considered before and provide a resource for businesses who may receive requests for recommended places to visit in the area.

Featuring information on events, attractions, hotels, retail and restaurants, support for Visit Rotherham is provided by Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council.

The website was officially launched by Councillor Maggi Cark, Mayor of Rotherham at the Carlton Park Hotel. Launching the site, the mayor said: "This is a perfect opportunity to show the real Rotherham and the great things that we have to offer the people. The support that has been received for the people who are making this happen in our town is outstanding."

Mark Hannigan, operations manager at Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce added: "This is something not only for visitors to our town, but for everyone in Rotherham to know what's going on and what they can do. The site is going from strength to strength every day. I would urge everyone to have a look at the site and see what it can offer."

The website has been designed by Rotherham enterprise, Castus.

Castus was established in 2005 and moved into RiDO's Matrix @ Dinnington business centre when it opened in 2009. With a team of developers, designers and project managers, the firm has a varied portfolio of websites, apps and online stores with local, national and international clients. It has won a number of industry awards for its work.

The visitor economy is a key part of the recently approved Rotherham Growth Plan with the potential Gulliver's Valley theme park at Rother Valley and the Yorkshire Man of Steel picked out as priority projects.
