Looking forward to welcoming you

As lockdown restrictions begin to ease many of Hampshire’s hospitality and tourism businesses will be re-opening from 4 July and we cannot wait to welcome you back. Tourism businesses have been working hard to ensure that your visit is safe and will be adopting Visit England’s industry standard mark ‘We’re good to go’. Visit England’s ‘know before you go’ encourages all our visitors to plan ahead and check if there are restrictions before you travel. We welcome responsible visitors to Hampshire. #respectprotectenjoy

More about Visit England’s ‘We’re good to go’ 

Visit England, along with the other tourist organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the UK government, have launched a new industry standard mark as a way of supporting tourism businesses and providing reassurance to you. The industry standard is a way of letting you know which businesses have made necessary changes to their day-to-day workings, including social distancing measures and staff training.

More about ‘Know before you go’ 

These are new times and many of our businesses will be implementing new processes. Things may be different to normal and could take a little longer. To make your visit as seamless and as enjoyable as possible we strongly advise that you check opening times, ticket and booking information and further guidance directly with any relevant attractions/venues/accommodation providers before making plans to visit. In line with government guidelines most businesses will now require you to pre-book online before you visit.
