Worcestershire is re-opening more attractions for visitors as lockdown measures ease across England.

The county is once again throwing open its doors for visitors and there are a wealth of options to get out and enjoy Worcestershire again.

Lockdown restrictions will be eased from July 4th 2020, to allow pubs, restaurants and hairdressers to reopen, as well as leisure facilities and tourist attractions.

Councillor Ken Pollock, cabinet member with responsibility for Economy and Infrastructure at Worcestershire County Council said: “We are looking forward to welcoming people back to our beautiful county.

“With many people enduring difficult circumstances throughout lockdown, it is fantastic to see so many of our attractions opening up to give the public some much needed fun.

“Worcestershire remains a fantastic destination for people to visit. We hope that this latest lockdown easing and the re-opening of some of the best attractions in Worcestershire brings some money into the local economy and helps businesses get back up on their feet.”

During the lockdown, Worcestershire County Council opened country parks to local visitors and number have been steadily increasing with more people wanting to get out and enjoy the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. The Malvern Hills have also reopened to visitors in recent weeks, and Worcestershire boasts beautiful walks and attractions along the riverside next to the Severn, Teme and the Avon.

Joining attractions like West Midland Safari Park, Witley Court and Broadway Tower, the County Museum at Hartlebury Castle will be open from July 4th and Worcester City Museum will follow on the 6th.

Social distancing restrictions are still in place and caution is advised. The public are reminded to check individual rules before you attend anywhere that is re-opening.
