COVID-19 Update, September 2020

Know Before You Go

Many of our tourism and hospitality businesses have now re-opened and we’ve enjoyed welcoming you over these past few summer months.

Whilst restrictions have been eased, things are still a little different to normal and we would encourage you to plan ahead and know before you go. Please check opening times, facilities available and whether you need to book in advance of your visit.

Many National Trust properties, gardens and attractions require you to pre-book as do restaurants, so it’s worth taking a little extra time to plan ahead to make the most of your break.

Please continue to follow the guidelines that are regularly updated by the government here at
