With the government easing lockdown restrictions gradually, we’re excited to see many UK attractions are setting out their plans to welcome visitors back through their doors. After what feels like forever, we’ll have the chance to enjoy a day out again!
It won’t just be back to normal straight away - we can expect phased openings, reduced capacity, and lots of additional safety measures in place, as well as the need to book ahead in advance.
Here we have all the details for reopening dates for top attractions across the UK - we’ll be keeping this updated in the coming weeks too, but you can also check out our Facebook page for announcements. These dates are confirmed in line with the current government advice, but please bear in mind some dates may be delayed as part of the roadmap announcement.
