No Calls, We're British

April 11, 1999

In regard to the Traveler's Note on the British Tourist Authority closing offices, leaving only Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City (News, Tips & Bargains, March 28): I believe you will find that the Los Angeles office has been closed for some years, and the sole U.S. telephone contact is New York City. The BTA lists the Chicago office as "open to personal callers only, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday."

This reminds me of the days when the railroad, trying to discourage passenger travel, "hid" its offices on upper floors in the central city.

Editor's note: The BTA maintains a marketing office in Los Angeles that is not open to the public.
