The Latest

People in Yorkshire (along with the rest of the country) have once again been asked to stay at home for a four week lockdown. 

This time however, things look a little different in comparison to the lockdown in March. 

Open For Business

The Piece Hall and all of its traders will be offering a full click and collect service while producers such as York Gin will be selling exclusive products online. Garden Centers such as Tong Garden Center will continue to trade and restaurants such as The Black Swan will be offering their at-home dining experience food boxes. 


Let's embrace walking again (let's be honest we never really stopped). Although government advice states you should minimise the time spent outside your home, you can still enjoy your local outdoor space. Nature reserves and canal towpaths will remain open along with those ever-important communal parks. You can even pick up a local takeaway coffee or cake along the way as many cafés and deli's that will be offering pick up services. 

Love Your Local 

With lots of businesses facing difficult challenges, there is no better time to show your support to your favourite local business over lockdown.

  • Order a takeaway
  • Buy a gift voucher
  • Postpone don't cancel
  • Leave a review
  • Spread the word 

Stay At Home 

As you're unable to visit many of your favourite places in Yorkshire over the next four weeks, we thought we'd bring them to you. Check out our Yorkshire Days In section on our website for inspiration and activities to do at home. We're working with all your favourite places to provide a place packed full of ideas and inspiration on what you can do at home. These could be recipes to cook, books to read or even how to create your own science experiment!

Follow Government Guidelines 

Before you venture anywhere in your local area we strongly recommend that you follow government guidelines. 

Remember - ‘Hands. Face. Space.’:

Hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
Face – wear a face covering indoors where social distancing may be difficult
Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible.
