The great Yorkshire reopening has begun
April 12, 2021
Outdoor areas at places like Yorkshire's
Cafes and pubs, which can still be found in many villages across Yorkshire, make a very welcome return with table service in their outdoor seating areas and beer gardens. Restaurants may also open for outdoor service.
Shops that have been deemed by the Government to be non-essential through the winter, including clothing shops and electronic goods stores, are also able to open their doors, if they are among the survivors of the pandemic restrictions. Hairdressers and nail salons have also been able to open their doors from April 12. Gyms can reopen for individual or household exercise.
While some freedoms are returning, and new cases of Covid-19 have recently fallen, it has not gone away and caution is still needed to keep yourself and others safe. The Government continues to advise that you should stay 2 metres apart from anyone who is not in your household or support bubble where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions such as wearing face coverings if you cannot stay 2 metres apart. A rule on gatherings of either up to six or two households still applies.
We recommend you check the website of visitor attractions you plan to visit to check their planned opening times and ticket arrangements. You will find links to many of them in the pages of Yorkshire.guide
