We are passionate about you exploring South East England but sadly now is not the time to travel. As an industry, we've never been so proud of our attractions, hoteliers and wider tourism businesses all pulling together to support the nation and local communities during these unprecedented times, despite their own closures and financial challenges.

From distilleries adapting their businesses and producing hand sanitiser, hoteliers providing accommodation for key workers and the homeless and transport providers delivering food supply to the most vulnerable. It's wonderful to see so many businesses being so creative and coming up with so many solutions to support the cause and/or keep you entertained from the safety of your own home.

This time does provide a great opportunity to check out an array of virtual tours for places you've always wanted to visit or the time download educational programmes created by zoos and historic attractions to entertain you as a family and keep learning whilst the schools are closed. Follow Twitter and Facebook to discover ideas every day.

So for as long as it takes... stay at home, protect our NHS and save lives. Make the most of this time as the world slows down for a short time. We can't wait to welcome you back to South East England as soon as possible. We will all appreciate our weekends, days out and holidays so much more going forward.

If you do have to travel please ensure you follow official UK guidance on COVID-19 (see our page on Coronavirus COVID-19).

If you are looking to browse the region from home in anticipation of safer times ahead,  do browse this site which is a great resource and can provide you with plenty of inspiration for future days out and short breaks all year round.
