Current advice to the Visitor Economy

The purpose of this guidance is to inform businesses working in the visitor economy in Wales of ongoing legal restrictions and requirements related to the coronavirus, and to help them re-open when this is allowed. It is available to download in full from the Business Wales website.

The following guidance is current as at 29 June 2020 and will be reviewed in the event of any changes. 

The current proposals at the last review on 19 June, which are subject to change, envisage re-opening the visitor economy as follows:

6 July 2020


Outdoor visitor attractions

Ministers will lift the requirement on 6 July if the conditions continue to be favourable.

Lifting of current requirement to stay local will mean people are able to travel around Wales and will allow outdoor visitor attractions to open again, subject to strict social distancing and hand hygiene guidelines.

13 July 

Reopening self-contained holiday accommodation

Options for reopening and a final decision will be made at the next review of the regulations on 9 July.

Bookings can be made for stays after 13 July, but this is at people’s own risk and they should check with the accommodation provider before they book.

This includes any accommodation that is entirely self-contained, e.g. holiday cottages, holiday caravans including modern touring caravans and motorhomes and some glamping accommodation with their own kitchens and bathrooms that no other guests use.

To be confirmed

Camping and caravanning; Indoor visitor attractions; *Pubs, bars and restaurants; and other businesses in the visitor economy

 (*Pubs, bars and restaurants – a fast track review is being undertaken)
