We’re really pleased to see our lovely town and many local attractions re-opening in these cautious times.
Many have reopened with social distancing being respected and the need to book pre-timed tickets.
To avoid disappointment, if you are interested in any specific attractions it would be worth checking they are open and whether they require advance booking before heading to them (just in case).
Please do visit, support and enjoy our lovely town!
