  • Due to the excellent response I’ve had, I would definitely recommend it

    This will be my third year advertising in ‘This is Edinburgh’, and due to the excellent response I’ve had, I would definitely recommend it. I have given up placing adverts in the newspapers as it has been a waste of time. During the Edinburgh Festival especially, in the past week I have got four lovely new customers who read my advert in ‘This is Edinburgh’ in their different hotel bedrooms. They all said that they would definitely be returning. Great to hear!

  • We had a lot of visitors to our shop following publication

    I have been delighted with our advert in ‘Welcome to Bristol’. We had a lot of visitors to our shop following publication of the book.

  • We have had an excellent response from it

    Advertising in ‘This Is Edinburgh’ has been great for us. It’s a very classy publication and we’ll certainly keep advertising in it. Good job! We have had an excellent response from it and look forward to taking out the same 1/2 page package again.

  • We have seen a marked increase in both enquiries and bookings

    I would just like to thank you for your assistance in putting together our advert for the back cover of your ‘This is Liverpool’ publication. By advertising in this fantastic publication we have seen a marked increase in both enquiries and bookings following the advert placed with you.

  • It was a pleasure to see such visible results

    We got a great response to our advertisement in this excellent publication. After 17 years of often-ineffective advertising in various media, it was a pleasure to see such visible results.

  • This avenue really does work for us

    We have been working with Kingfisher for six years. As the publication is placed in the nearby hotels, we feel that this avenue really does work for us. We frequently ask how people have heard of us and a good percentage is through the publication, especially at the weekends and over the summer period. It is the only form of advertising we use and we feel it is good value for money as the quality of the book produced is of a very high standard. I would recommend it to any outlet within the leisure/tourism sector.

    Gemma Wilson, Manager, St Pauls Gallery, Birmingham
  • The response every year gets better and better

    For the last three editions, I have used your Newcastle-Gateshead visitor guide to increase awareness of my business. The response every year gets better and better. We receive many visitors from all over the country and many from overseas – we always ask where they found out about us and 99% say they have read the book in the hotel room where they are staying, or checked out the Kingfisher Visitor Guides website. The business this generates more than covers the cost of the advert and it is always a great investment. I would highly recommend using Kingfisher Visitor Guides to advertise any local business.

  • For advertisers it's excellent value for money

    What a superb hardback guide to Oxford and the surrounding areas. A joy to look through. For advertisers it’s excellent value for money. Our advert looks absolutely amazing – we are thrilled to bits with it.

  • 'This is Leeds' has been the best value-for-money publication we have been in

    Last year we advertised in ‘This is Leeds’ for the very first time. We mulled over it for some time as, being a small business, we need to be certain every penny is working for us. Within days of ‘This is Leeds’ being published, we saw customers coming in from the hotels. Also, they were the right type of customers and the advert quickly paid for itself. It’s tough deciding what to advertise in at the moment, but ‘This is Leeds’ has been the best value-for-money publication we have been in this year.

    Vicky Denby, Owner, Mummy & Little Me, Leeds
  • The revenue the advert brought in was ten times the cost of the outlay

    I closely monitor every enquiry we get and I was very pleased with the result of our ad in this quality publication. The revenue the advert brought in was ten times the cost of the outlay.

  • We got an excellent response to our advert

    We got an excellent response to our advert – we had a significant number of customers who came to the restaurant after seeing our advert in the publication.

    Jenny Tamas, Simply Greek Restaurant, Newcastle
  • We have had a significant increase of business from clients staying in the hotels

    I just wanted to say that since taking the full page advert out in ‘This is Edinburgh’ we have had a significant increase of business from clients staying in the hotels in Edinburgh. Marketing is always a difficult field, trying to find ones that work well, but I have to say this one is working well for JSB Executive Travel. We’re already looking forward to the season.

    Stephen Brown, JSB Executive Travel, Edinburgh
  • Many of our visitors come to the church having seen our advert in their hotel bedroom guide

    The ‘Welcome to Brighton & Hove’ publication works well for us, and many of our visitors come to the church having seen our advert in their hotel bedroom guide. We also have a copy of the publication in the church, and, judging by the interest shown in it, I’m sure visitors support the advertisers from the ideas they get on what to see and do.

  • The book has directly linked us to the millions of tourists that visit Glasgow each year

    We are delighted to have been included in the ‘This is Glasgow’ publication for many years. The book has directly linked us to the millions of tourists that visit Glasgow each year who may have missed our shop due to its location. To advertise directly into the tourist market has without any doubt kept our business alive and therefore this very important publication has been a very welcome asset to our business. We want to thank Kingfisher Visitor Guides for allowing us to participate in this outstanding publication.

    Irene Birkett, Owner, Glickman’s, Glasgow
  • We have been extremely pleased with the amount of customers that have found our front door

    This will be my fifth year advertising in the ‘Welcome to Brighton & Hove’ publication and with such an amazing response from our advert I will continue to do so. I would highly recommend it. Although we live in a fast digital world right now where a vast amount of our bookings are coming via the internet from all different kinds of avenues the quality of this tactile publication as a reliable first port of call for travellers staying in the city is second to none. It oozes authenticity, individualism, exclusivity, professionalism and reliability. It is certainly a publication our customers have trusted to use. It’s aesthetically pleasing and very well put together. The editorial features bring interest too. With its hard back it very much feels like the publication that has all the inside important knowledge about the city. We have been extremely pleased with the amount of customers that have found our front door through picking up this fantastic publication.

    Nicola Kamala, Director, The House Restaurant, Brighton & Hove
  • I’ve had definite customer feedback from our advert in your publication

    As a retailer I’m always suspicious of print advertising because I never seem to know if it works or not. But I’ve had definite customer feedback from our advert in your publication. It is the ideal place to reach people who are only staying here for a few days.

    Jared Myland, OK Comics, Leeds
  • The response we have received from our advert this year has been excellent

    We were delighted to feature in ‘Welcome to Hull & East Yorkshire’ and the response we have received from our advert this year has been excellent. It is a very high-quality publication and we think this encourages people to read it. It is invaluable for visitors to see what our wonderful city has to offer and this guide does that perfectly. Keep up the good work.

    Jo and Mat, Seals Jewellers, Hull
  • We got a fantastic response to our advert

    ‘This is Edinburgh’ is the best publication we have ever advertised in and we got a fantastic response to our advert! It does a brilliant job of representing Edinburgh and we’d recommend it to any potential advertiser.

    Lynne Hallgarth, Phoenix Falconry, Edinburgh
  • New customers came to the restaurant after seeing our advert

    We had a substantial number of new customers who came to the restaurant after seeing our advert in the book. It’s one of the few publications we advertise in where we can see a clear response, and we’re delighted to continue being involved in the ‘Welcome to Aberdeenshire’ guide.

    Rod Leach, Bar & Brasserie, Aberdeen
  • The ‘Welcome to South Devon’ guide really is excellent

    The ‘Welcome to South Devon’ guide really is excellent and is working for us already. We had a whole group come to the Tapas Bar for a birthday celebration last week after they saw our advert in the guide – and it had only been out for a few days!

    Carol Naughton, Owner, The Lytehouse, Brixham, South Devon
  • I'm delighted with the response we get at Pyramid Gallery

    I’m delighted with the response we get at Pyramid Gallery from Kingfisher’s ‘Welcome to York’ guide. I have been informed by several new customers in 2017 and 2018 that they have visited the gallery after seeing our advert in the Kingfisher bedroom browser, while staying at a York hotel.

    Terry Brett, Proprietor, Pyramid Gallery, York
  • It’s probably the best publication I’ve ever seen produced for the whole of Ayrshire

    Can I just say, I received my copy of ‘Welcome to Ayrshire & Arran’, and I think it’s absolutely excellent. It’s probably the best publication I’ve ever seen produced for the whole of Ayrshire. Well done to all involved!

    Toni Dawson, Managing Director, Geraldo’s, Largs, Ayrshire
  • A quality publication that we feel happy associating our company with

    ‘Welcome to Bath’ is a quality publication that we feel happy associating our company with. It is very well written and I think provides a genuinely interesting read for visitors staying in Bath. In addition, I would like to add that we have always found the team at Kingfisher to be highly professional and very easy to deal with.

    Rianna Pritchard, Managing Director, Clandar Ltd, Bath
  • We look forward to continuing our relationship together for all future publications

    Thank you to your whole team for the 2018 ‘You’re in London’ guide. From start to finish your team were excellent and the quality of the finished product is outstanding – one of the best city guides I have seen, with a perfect balance of editorial and imagery throughout. We look forward to continuing our relationship together for all future publications.

    Stefano Pieraccini, Trade and Commercial Executive, The FA Group, London
