On February 22, the Prime Minister set out the stages of his road map for easing restrictions.
Boris Johnson did stress that the easing of restrictions will follow a “data, not dates” principle, however if all goes to plan then we could be visiting some of our favourite attractions again.
Here is a roundup of when some of Norfolk’s attractions expect to welcome you back.
Norfolk Broads Boat Hire
You could be cruising around the Norfolk Broads by the end of this month. Some businesses that offer a day boat hire on the Norfolk Broads are set to welcome you back from March 29.
Others aim to be providing their services from April 12 as long as the government guidance goes ahead as expected.
It is important that you only hire a boat with the people from your own household or support bubble and always follow the government guidance.
