A team of volunteer ambassadors, some with their dogs, recognisable by their distinctive purple waistcoats, are on hand to show visitors around, distribute information and tell people about the town’s history and what to do and see, including the historic buildings, picturesque riverside and glorious views from The Prospect.
Visitors have been asking about the vintage shopping trail, the Augmented Reality of the ambitious Museum Without Walls and the town’s rich and colourful history. Eleven ambassadors, all of whom love of the town, can be found normally in the vicinity of the Market House and concentrate on a route in and around the town centre and Rope Walk most days of the week from around 10 am till 2pm. Disabled visitors are welcome as are dog lovers. In fact, Ross-on-Wye may be the first town in Britain to have canine ambassadors to go walkies around the town with tourists and visitors.
