ATTRACTIONS, RETAIL, BUSINESSES AND VENUES

Following current UK government announcements and guidelines (January 2021) many attractions and retail businesses are temporarily closed or offering different services to usual.

Some open air visitor attractions and venues MAY BE open, when and where they are able to adopt the latest guidance and enable effective social distancing policies.

PLEASE NOTE: attractions and other hospitality businesses  may also be closed due to seasonal changes

SO the best advice would be to STAY LOCAL, plan your local days out, shopping and essential exercise well, and, if and when appropriate, contact your chosen attraction for their latest visitor information.
