Plan your Stoke-cation
Your 2020 holiday plans may have gone out of the window, but you don’t need to travel far from your front door to enjoy a summer of fun! This summer provides a wonderful opportunity to explore our city and enjoy what’s on our doorstep.
Visit www.visitstoke.co.uk/stoke-cation for inspiration and start planning your summer Stoke-cation. From walks with monkeys to picnics in the park, Stoke-on-Trent has so much to offer.
Reconnect with nature
Did you know our city has more than 90 formal parks and open spaces, in towns and communities across Stoke-on-Trent – we’re one of the greenest cities in the country, and there is no better time to visit them than in the summer.
We have an outstanding collection of Victorian parks including Tunstall Park, Burslem Park, Hanley Park, Fenton Park, and Queens Park (Longton). Hanley Park has recently undergone a huge transformation that has seen the park’s main historic features and elements revamped and brought back to life following £4.5 million of National Lottery funding. Improvements include the restoration of the Pavillion, which is now home to a fantastic café.
Support our city’s attractions
As lockdown restrictions are now being gradually eased, our world-class attractions are beginning to reopen with special measures in place to keep visitors safe. So summer doesn’t need to be cancelled – this is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the great things to be found in the city.
Go to VisitStoke for information on lots of great attractions to visit.
As the city’s visitor attractions are beginning to open up and welcome us back in their own unique ways, visiting procedures will be a little different from usual. From pre-booked time slots to one-way routes, the city’s attractions are taking great care to ensure that there are measures in place to help you enjoy your days out safely with confidence.
When planning your trip, look out for the VisitEngland “We’re Good to Go” logo – which is a new industry standard mark which lets you know which businesses have made necessary changes to their day-to-day workings, including social distancing measures and staff training.
