Summer is well underway and with the news that our tourism and hospitality businesses can re-open, many of us are looking forward to taking our first steps back to embrace the “new normal”. We’ve already seen our much loved shops and some outdoor venues open and we now eagerly await the re-opening of our indoor attractions, hotels, pubs and restaurants. With the wonderful weather we are experiencing, July is shaping up to be a good month.
So, as you make plans to get out and about again, we recommend that you first do some homework! As venues prepare for their re-openings over the next few weeks, there will be many new procedures being put into place. From pre-booked time slots to new one-way routes and cashless facilities, things will be different, but if you are in the “Know Before You Go, then you can still have amazing experiences and fun times once again. Remember, if you need a reminder of how, when and who you can spend your days out with, then read the latest government advice.
Visit England, the national tourism body, has launched a new standard mark for tourism businesses to sign-up to. When you see the We’re Good to Go logo you can be assured that the business has put new measures in place so that you can visit with confidence and enjoy a memorable experience.
We know that things will be a little different as we adopt the “new normal” so we’ve compiled this checklist to remind you of some of things you may need to consider:
