Visit Buckinghamshire and The Chilterns

Support for tourism and hospitality businesses in Buckinghamshire.

Visit Buckinghamshire and The Chilterns is the official Destination Management Organisation (DMO) for the area, ensuring Buckinghamshire and The Chilterns is a leading destination for tourism, culture and business. 

Visit Buckinghamshire and The Chilterns has been running as a DMO since 2016. The DMO is hosted and managed by Buckinghamshire Business First (BBF), which acts as the Accountable Body, along with a partnership with Buckinghamshire Council, The Local Area Partnership and the Regional Tourism Steering committee.

We have a raft of specific Tourism & Hospitality business support, advice, events and funding available for your business.  COVID -19 advice is also now available to help your business survive and bounce back from the pandemic.

Further support is available through our retail, food & drink, and business advisers who can carry out a business review or health check, which can be done over the phone, or at your business premises.
