Mateys, it's finally happening.. we can go on holiday! Woohoo! Boris Johnson announce yesterday that hotels in England can now reopen from the 4th July.. *runs to book*!
As well as hotels reopening, hostels, bed-and-breakfast accommodation, holiday apartments or homes, cottages or bungalows, campsites, caravan parks and glamping sites can also reopen, so you have a wide choice of where you want to travel to in England.
However, things may be slightly different as room service will be left outside your door, screens may be put up in the hotel bar and less people allowed in at one time, menus may be paper and disposable and there will be hand sanitiser stations to keep your hands germ free.
Also from the 4th of July, pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés will also be allowed to reopen their doors, as will museums, galleries and cinemas - meaning that we will have many options of things to do while we enjoy our staycation - make sure you book in advance!
We won't even need to keep 2 metres apart as this rule os also changing from the 4th of July to one- metre plus which we think will be much more easier to keep up. If you are taking public transport on your travels, you will be required to wear a mask throughout your journey.
What is allowed to open?
Hotels, hostels, bed-and-breakfast accommodation, holiday apartments or homes, cottages or bungalows, campsites, caravan parks, places of worship, libraries, restaurants, cafés, bars, pubs, cinemas, bingo halls, theatres and concert halls (as guidance dictates no live performances), museums and galleries, hair salons and barbers, outdoor playgrounds, outdoor gyms, funfairs, theme parks and adventure parks and activities, amusement arcades, outdoor skating rinks, other indoor leisure centres or facilities, including indoor games, recreation and entertainment venues, social clubs and indoor attractions at aquariums, zoos, safari parks, farms, wildlife centres and any place where animals are exhibited to the public as an attraction.
