Visitors to EastSide Visitor Centre can access information on the city’s attractions from interactive digital screens, interpretative panels and a wall map revealing EastSide’s famous faces, places and industries.

The centre includes a coffee bar named after EastSide’s most famous author, C.S Lewis, who was affectionately known as ‘Jack’ to his close friends and family. JACK Coffee Bar offers the very best in locally sourced produce and provides a shop window for local artists and food producers to showcase their products.
