Discover Suffolk

Now is the time to start planning to visit Suffolk

The risk of the coronavirus being passed on to others outdoors is now considered to be low as long as people maintain social distancing.

The Government have announced new rules on travel to and access to green spaces which includes beaches.

In England, you can now:

  • Drive to outdoor open spaces, including beaches and beauty spots, irrespective of distance - you should travel in a private vehicle, alone or with members of your own household
  • Visit gardens and land maintained for public use as an alternative open space to spend time outdoors, although buildings and amenities such as cafes will remain closed and access may be limited to members or those with tickets to ensure social distancing. You should check ahead and follow social distancing guidelines
  • Go swimming in either lakes or the sea as part of daily exercise provided that social distancing guidelines are observed - you cannot use public indoor and outdoor pools
  • All forms of water sports practiced on open waterways, including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, rowing, kayaking, surfing, paddle-boarding and the use of privately-owned motorised craft (in line with the guidance issued by the relevant navigation authority) are allowed
  • There are no restrictions on how far you can travel to get to the countryside. However you should not stay overnight. Campsites and caravan parks are closed and you cannot visit a holiday or second home.

Government advice on access to green spaces

Tourism businesses are desperate to re-open - but only when it's safe for residents and visitors alike.
