Coronavirus / Covid-19

With some easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures across the country, many of us are able to spend more time outdoors, enjoying exercise and a welcome change of scenery! Some of our beautiful outdoor attractions are now open for the public to enjoy safely. You can also take advantage of our new ‘Get Active’ web pages which provide information on different ways to explore our area with all the family in mind.

If you are planning to visit us, please do so safely by continuing to follow social distancing guidance. Additionally, please check with individual attractions via their websites or social media for current opening arrangements, as they may have changed recently.

Many of our attractions unfortunately remain closed to the public and most events in the area have been cancelled or provisionally postponed. Please follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for the latest updates and information about ways to explore out great attractions online.

We hope that you, your family and loved ones are keeping safe and well. We look forward to seeing you soon! #StayAlert
