Know Before You Go

It’s time to enjoy Norwich

The shops are reopening, the restaurants are serving food, and the attractions are ready for visitors! Leaving the house has never been so appealing – get out of those four walls and back into the city for safe summer fun.

But before you swap your dining room for a restaurant table, Joe Wicks for mini-golf, or your patio for The Plantation Garden, we recommend following the Know Before You Go advice, and the guide below. That way you can skip the stress and make the most of your outing!

As businesses reopen, they’re establishing individual security measures to keep you safe and well. Businesses are putting your safety first, from extra in-depth cleaning to lowering guest numbers. Many attractions and restaurants are offering pre-booked slots and creating one-way-routes, so you’ll have the same special feel.

Plan Ahead

Before you set out on your journey, make sure to check individual websites for updated information about opening times, and whether you need to pre-book. You might also want to check to see if toilet facilities are open, if you can buy food and drink, and if car parking is available.

If your plans change, please remember to cancel your booking, as it helps businesses plan.

Look out for the Green Tick

‘We’re Good to Go’ is a brand new Industry Standard, which shows that the business has worked hard to follow government and industry COVID-19 guidelines. Lots of local businesses have put new processes in places to aid social distancing and maintain cleanliness, and the ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark shows that these extra steps have been taken to keep you safe.
