Luxury tour operator ITC Travel Group has moved into its new headquarters in the newly named Bridgetown House on Chester’s Lower Bridge Street.

The company moved from its former offices in Canal Street and employs 142 members of staff.

ITC’s chairman Jennifer Atkinson cut the ribbon across the front door, stating that the move marks the next stage in ITC investing in a more modern working environment.

Atkinson said: “I’m delighted to unveil Bridgetown House as our new home.

“We look forward to spending many more decades here on Lower Bridge Street.”

The building was officially announced open by Chester’s town crier who then joined staff inside for celebratory afternoon tea.

ITC Travel counts Inspiring Travel Company, ITC Sports Travel, Regent Holidays, Rainbow Tours and Chester’s Deva Travel among its brands.
