One of Bath's most popular attractions, the Roman Baths Museum, has announced that it will be re-opening from the 6th July. This follows today's announcement by the UK Government that all museums in England can re-open from the 4th July provided that they adhere to Government guidelines.
The Roman Baths Museum contains the remains of the Roman Spa that was built over one of the city's hot springs. If you have the time (allow for at least 1 to 1.5 hours) it is certainly worth a visit during a stay in Bath. Visitor numbers are likely to be restricted so all tickets will need to be purchased in advance on their website.
Each museum has its own challenges for re-opening so do not expect all museums to re-open straight away. If you have any questions about a specific museum in Bath do let me know.
Today's Government announcement officially confirmed that all hotels, B&Bs and holiday homes in England can re-open from the 4th July. Restaurants, cafes and pubs can also re-open. Again this is providing they follow Government safety guidelines. This is great news for people wishing to visit England's wonderful destinations. As of yet there is no further update on the 2 week quarantine for people travelling into the country from abroad. The Government is scheduled to review the quarantine policy at the end of this month and exemptions for countries with low infection rates are expected to be announced. I am not a betting-man so I won't state which countries may benefit from these initial exemptions! As soon as I have more concrete news I will let you know.
