Coronavirus Updates – Guided Tours

MDY Logo

The government has updated its guidance on guided tours at heritage sites

Indoor guided tours can go ahead in tier 1 provided it is possible to ensure that groups of more than six (or larger if they are from one household/support bubble) do not mingle with each other. Indoor guided tours can go ahead in tier 2 if it is possible to ensure that groups of single households/support bubbles do not mingle on a guided tour. In tier 3 indoor attractions are closed.

In tiers 1, 2 and 3, outdoor guided tours can go ahead at historic parks, garden attractions or landscapes, provided it is possible to ensure that groups of more than six (or larger if they are from one household/support bubble) do not mingle with each other. This is in line with general visiting restrictions for such venues, where the rule of 6 applies.

Visitors must stay in their own group at all times throughout the tour. Businesses must undertake risk assessments and put any necessary mitigations in place.

You can read the guidance for heritage sites on the Government’s website. The guidance on guided tours is under Section 2: Keeping your Customers, Visitors, and Contractors Safe.
