International Greeter Day this Sunday

Besi Besemar September 7, 2017

VisitBrighton’s greeter team will be offering on the spot greets, (instagreets), to mark International Greeter Day on Sunday, September 10, 2017.

Greeters are Brighton & Hove residents who volunteer to show groups of up to six visitors around their favourite parts of the city for free.

As well as showcasing places that have a personal meaning to them, greeters can also show things visitors specifically ask for such as parks, the best shopping spots, saunas, impressive architecture or city specific hidden treasures.

Each greet usually lasts between 1-2 hours and is bookable in advance via the VisitBrighton website.  On International Greeter day though there’s no need to book ahead, visitors may just turn up at the Royal Pavilion Gardens between 10am-3pm to receive a free bespoke tour of up to an hour.

Chair of Brighton & Hove’s Tourism, Development & Culture committee, Cllr Alan Robins, said:  “The greeter scheme offers a very personal introduction to the city and is a firm favourite with visitors from all over the world.  The greeters give visitors a warm welcome and are able to share their passion for the city as well as giving an insight into some of the area’s hidden gems.”

Brighton Greeters are part of a global network of greeters covering over 100 destinations.
