Visiting after Lockdown

Rutland provides the perfect rural escape with lots of open spaces, no busy cities and we’re full of fantastic small businesses going out of their way (and yours) to offer a safer way of doing things.

With the roadmap to reopening in full swing, businesses now have their own protocol in place, so please make sure you check before your visit – Know Before You Go!

Things to remember

  • Places continue to make changes to their protocol, please check in advance and be patient – they are all trying their hardest
  • Have a facemask handy, in case some venues require them
  • Follow the Government guidance
  • Be respectful of the surrounding areas, to help protect the most vulnerable in those communities
  • Please park respectfully
  • Please take your litter home with you
    Thank you for your support



Look out for the We’re Good To Go mark from VisitEngland which highlights that a tourism / hospitality business has adapted their operations in line with respective Government and public health guidance and has a COVID-19 risk assessment in place to aid staff training, social distancing and cleanliness. See a list of Rutland businesses with the Good To Go mark here.
