The IDTA was formed in the late 1980s combining the Ilfracombe & District Hotel & Catering Association & the Ilfracombe Publicity Association. This new group took over the running of the Tourist Information Centre & the production of the Ilfracombe Guide, which continued until 2015. We still help and support the Tourist Information Centre and actively promote Tourism within North Devon.
Members are from various tourism related businesses, Accommodation, Restaurants and Cafes and Tourist Attractions to small local businesses and shops. We offer a support network, with regular emails and a quarterly newsletter with a variety of social and informative events being held in the low season, where you can meet other members and have fun days/evenings out.
Membership fees help towards the regular annual donations that we make to various Ilfracombe groups plus we include a Tourism Project Fund fee that goes towards specific capital tourism projects.
We have representation on Harbour Board, the Ilfracombe Marketing Group, and Events4Ilfracombe.
If you are interested in finding out more please contact us via the Tourist Information Centre and one of our committee will give you a call. The membership fee is just £40.00 per annum with £7.50 of this going to our Tourism Project fund.
