Oswestry Borderland Tourism is the only organisation that exists solely to promote Oswestry in North West Shropshire and the Welsh Borderlands as a high quality visitor destination. We do that mainly by operating Oswestry Tourist Information Centre in the Visitor & Exhibition Centre, producing the brochure – Oswestry, what to see, do and where to stay – and designing, maintaining and promoting this web site www.oswestry-welshborders.org.uk (VisitOswestry.co.uk). OBT also promotes Oswestry and the Borderlands with regular social media posts. Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook – @OswestryTourism. We liaise with other organisations such as Oswestry Town Council, Oswestry BID, Visit Shropshire and Shropshire Council on all tourism related matters.
Oswestry Borderland Tourism Ltd. is a not for profit organisation and, with the help of our staff in the Tourist Information Centre, is managed by a board of members who volunteer their time to help promote Oswestry and The Borderlands.
In 2020 35,000 copies of the brochure- Oswestry, what to see, do and where to stay – have been produced. 19,000 have gone to a national distribution company and the remainder will be distributed locally throughout Oswestry Town, Shrewsbury and attractions and venues in the area.
The web site is constantly being updated and members have the option to update their own pages. We also promote Oswestry & The Borderlands via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. especially any special events or special offers that they may offer.
