Planning your visit

Planning your visit

Plan your visit

Make sure you plan ahead and book direct, especially during peak times. Booking direct supports the local business.

Enjoy slow tourism

Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy your trip. Allow extra time for travel and plan lots of breaks or stops.

Be mindful of closures

If you see any closed signs along paths or trails, please respect these. Even if it looks OK to you, as it is not safe for you and your family to use them just now – they are closed for good reason.

Around water

We love our coast, rivers and lakes but please remember to be safe and responsible and always ensure children are within arm’s reach. If heading for a swim at the beach – please seek out patrolled beaches and swim between the flags.

Please also read and abide by any water safety advice, guidance and signage where provided and keep yourself and others safe. For more information, safety guidelines and helpful advice, visit
