You needn’t be locked indoors throughout the Coronavirus crisis, social distancing doesn’t mean social isolation. A large number of the Island’s pubs, restaurants, cafés, shops and attractions are still open for business as usual. 

If you’re struggling to keep the family (or even yourself) occupied at this difficult time, there’s nothing better than getting out in the great outdoors and exploring one of the Island’s outdoor attractions such as one of the beautiful gardens. Take the opportunity to enjoy the open air, grab a moment of calm and maybe even learn a few things too. 

All that exercise and exploration worked up an appetite and left you needing refreshment? No need to worry, following government guidance, all food and drink establishments have now gone above and beyond the usual hygiene practices to deliver an even safer dining experience. Tables are spaced a little further apart, disposable or wipe clean menus have been introduced, takeaway options are available and outside areas have been opened up. They’re ready and waiting for you, so show your support!

You’ll find a comprehensive list of the Island businesses which are still open and operational on our dedicated ‘open for business’ page.
