Covid 19 regulations
This walk will be run according to the government safety guidelines in place at the time. Updated information about the walk will be posted on Eventbrite.

Currently: If in the last 10 days you, anyone in your household or support bubble have had any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste), have tested positive for coronavirus or have been told by NHS Test and Trace that you have been in contact with a person with coronavirus please do not attend the tour. Simply let us know as soon as you can and we can allocate your space to another person.

We will be observing social distancing on the tour, each household/bubble must keep 2m apart, where this is not possible the 1m plus rule will be followed. Despite government guidelines allowing for groups of up to 30 people on events such as ours, we will be limiting the walk numbers to 20 participants or less to make it easier to socially distance.

We also ask that when the group is in close proximity discussing key locations of interest that masks are worn. These can be removed when walking or when the group is more dispersed.

Everyone on the walk will be required to wear a face mask, so we kindly ask that you bring your own.

Please arrive promptly. Upon arrival to the tour leader will need to confirm a name and contact phone number for each group, for the NHS track and trace system.
