Things to do at the weekend - out and about again

As we see an ease in government restrictions more attractions like zoos, museums and fairgrounds are opening up again to visitors. Check out these ideas from our Communications team.

Things may be a little different from before, here are a few things to bear in mind:

  • You will probably need to book a time slot in advance, check the websites before you leave.
  • Going in the afternoon (after 2.30pm) is likely to be less busy.
  • Once there, follow the guidance like one way systems, to keep safe.

Open air markets are now trading again and if you fancy browsing stalls somewhere a little different try Alderford Lake near Whitchurch who are now hosting a regular Sunday market. With stalls featuring food, local produce and even garden furniture there should be something for everyone. (£1 entry fee)

RAF Museum Cosford re-opens on Monday 6 July to pre-booked visitors, is free to visit (parking charges apply) and offers a great mix of things to do and see for all ages. Take in the huge array of aircraft on display, visit the Test Flight hangar and War in the Air collection, then take an in-depth look into the story of the Cold War (an eye opener!).

Trentham gardens in Staffordshire has re-opened its large garden centre and timber lodge shopping village. There are plenty of eateries and a great mix of shops to explore. The Italian gardens which sit next to the mile long, Capability Brown, lake are also open (entrance fee applies) and if you are lucky you may spot a fairy or too!

Where ever you go this week have a great time and remember to stay alert, control the virus and save lives.
