Coronavirus – COVID 19 – 22nd March 2020

Hidden Valley will now remain closed until further notice.

Coronavirus – COVID 19 – 20th March 2020

Following the most recent announcement by the government regarding suggested restrictions to help control the spread of coronavirus in the UK, Hidden Valley Discovery Park have had to make new changes to its day to day procedures.

The park will re-open as planned on 28th March 2020 (this may be subject to change if new restrictions are brought in by the government) All outside areas will be open. This includes both the Indiana Trail and Sherlock Trail, Tibbohton which has had many improvements for the 2020 season, an expanded garden railway and all the grounds and gardens. Social distancing will be required at all times. The Forbidden Mansion, Shop and Restaurant will not be open.

 Admission prices will be reduced to reflect that only outside parts of the park will be accessible – Adults £9.50, Children £8.50 and O.A.P’s £7.50

 The situation will be monitored and updated regularly with the hopes of returning to full operation as soon as possible.

We do want people to come and enjoy our outside trails, gardens, Tibbohton and garden railway, but we also encourage you to regularly wash your hands and to follow all advice given by WHO and the UK Government to:-

 Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) if you cough or sneeze.

 Place used tissues in the bin immediately.

Frequently wash your hands with soap and hot water (for a minimum of 20 seconds).

Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell or have been known to have visited infected areas.

 Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth unless your hands are clean.

 We are aware that as the situation changes, the government may bring in new restrictions and we will endeavour to keep our policy updated.

 

 

Coronavirus – COVID 19 – 17th March 2020

Following the recent announcements by the government regarding suggested restrictions to help control the spread of coronavirus in the UK, Hidden Valley Discovery Park have had to make some changes to its day to day procedures.

The park will re-open as planned on 28th March 2020 (this may be subject to change if new restrictions are brought in by the government) All outside areas will be open. This includes both the Indiana Trail and Sherlock Trail, Tibbohton which has had many improvements for the 2020 season, an expanded garden railway, maze and all the grounds and gardens. The Forbidden Mansion will not be open and the Restaurant will be open in a limited capacity.

Forbidden Mansion – Due to the nature of the mansion (enclosed spaces and potential for close contact with other people) we have decided that it would be inappropriate to keep the mansion open and put people at risk.

Restaurant – The government have issued advice to avoid restaurants and pubs. We feel that it would be irresponsible to continue keeping the restaurant open in its usual format. We will instead be opening the restaurant to serve hot and cold takeaway drinks, prewrapped cakes and depending on demand, we may be able to offer hot savoury options to takeaway. We would encourage people not to congregate in the restaurant and try where possible to allow others using the area to distance themselves as they feel appropriate.

Admission prices will be reduced to reflect that only outside parts of the park will be accessible – Adults £9.50, Children £8.50 and O.A.P’s £7.50

The situation will be monitored and updated regularly with the hopes of returning to full operation as soon as possible.
