There wasn't much open in Lerwick on the Sunday afternoon we were there! But the info centre was. A good array of info leaflets, books, souvenirs, and friendly staff. We picked up some nice souvenirs.

The service provided here was great. Robin, who helped us, was very informative and suggested plenty of options for things we could do in our short stay in Shetland. Top notch service!

Our Ship was docked at a pier a couple of miles away, but Lerwick offered a free shuttle that dropped us off in front of the visitor Center. They were able to answer all our questions and they were very friendly.

Good free internet in the town center with a small gift shop. Lots of information on Lerwick, it was a easy walk from the tender dock.
