COVID 19 UPDATE – 17.05.21

As a responsible business, during this coronavirus outbreak we have followed Government Guidance and because pubs have been closed under that Guidance, we have had to postpone our tours.  

This latest update is based on the Government Guidance issued on 17 May. 

Outdoor gatherings are limited to 30 people and indoor gatherings are limited to 6 people or 2 households (each household can include a support bubble, if eligible).

It is then hoped that in step 4 all restrictions will be lifted from 21 June.
However, the Prime Minister has made it clear that the lifting of restrictions will be determined by four tests:
‘The vaccine deployment programme continues successfully.
Evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated.
Infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS.
Our assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new variants of concern.’

There is now also concern over new variants and these may have an effect on the lifting of restrictions on 21 June. 

Given the restrictions on meetings in pubs from 17 May and the caution over whether all restrictions will be lifted from 21 June, it is not yet possible for us to reschedule our tours.

However, as soon as matters become clearer and Government Guidance indicates that we can do so, we will launch a number of dates so that you and your party can come along as planned. Of course, there will be no extra charges for this change to your scheduled tour.
Please be assured that as soon as we are able to do so, we shall email you with those dates and we look forward to seeing you when it is possible to do so.

As a small business, we do not have any loss of earnings or business interruption insurance for this scenario and need to keep our business afloat. We are incredibly vulnerable in this situation and greatly appreciate your support.

Please note that all vouchers expiration dates will be extended for the duration of the UK Government lockdown starting from the 23rd March 2020. For example, should we be able to restart on 1st August 2020, we will extend the vouchers for 10 weeks.

Stay Safe and Take Care.
