Swale Visitor Map
Note: No new publications have been printed in 2020 due to Covid 19 - previous year publications are still featured for reference and interest with the guidance to contact an attraction or accommodation provider directly for their Covid 19 opening and social distancing information.
Visit Swale has produced a 'Swale Visitor Map' featuring all the accommodation and attraction listings on the Visit Swale website at the time of design (November 2018). The map will be distributed throughout the South East and London for wider information and can be downloaded as two pdf files, one for each side of the publication - originally A2 in size can be viewed on screen using magnification or printed on A3 should you wish to use a hard copy.
