COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Despite the lifting of restrictions earlier this year, we will continue to implement our COVID-19 safety measures for the time being. Queueing systems for toilet facilities will remain in place and we ask our customers to continue to wear face masks in any indoor spaces and observe signage on site. We appreciate that not all our visitors will want to continue to observe these measures and maintain social distancing whilst visiting the site, however please be respectful of other visitors who do wish to continue to observe them

The on-site cafes are closed for refurbishment.

Please remember that BBQs, camping stoves and open fires are strictly not permitted in any of our parks and open spaces.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
