Can you believe we’re almost at the end of July?! Not sure where the time has gone but we’re certainly hoping that the good weather remains over the coming months so we can (safely) get out and about again with the risk of coronavirus being passed on to others outdoors now considered to be low risk whilst people are socially distancing, and lockdown easing, and travel allowed, meaning these attractions are re-opening again after many long months of closure due to lockdown. Eventswhatson.com have hundreds of days out, and family and places to visit listed throughout the East of England, also featuring some lovely holiday destinations for a UK staycation so you can have a great summer come rain or shine..
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the information displayed here is accurate, always check with the venue before attending (especially during the Covid-19 pandemic).
However, we would like to remind our readers to check details in advance with individual attraction, as they will have limited capacity, pre-booking will be required, and all will be enforcing social distancing.
When traveling please ensure you follow official UK guidance on COVID-19.
