Coronavirus worldwide outbreak

24 June 2022

I have decided NOT to offer any more self-guided walking tours. It has become too difficult to book one night stays and for meals to be available in the remote locations that the walking tours go through. After 30 years I am closing down, and If you have been a previous customer, and wish to write, please feel free to email me philip@explorebritain.com If you feel you would like to offer these tours, again please contact me by email.

Current Government rules on coming to Britain.

Most restrictions have now been removed.

If you want to make a booking you must have a trip cancellation insurance policy OR fully accept that deposit and final payments already made are non-refundable. Your trip insurance should cover you if you request a change to your dates after confirmation. When I start reserving rooms and booking taxis and luggage transfer for your tour I will have a contract with them to provide the service for you.

THERE ARE SOME SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS. YOU are responsible for your own health risks There is still a threat of cancellation because of the Coronavirus worldwide outbreak.

Remember better to be safe and NOT come until 2024. We are supporting the health of our suplliers and our customers by delaying opening bookings. We also want you to have a good experience free of worry, and where places are open to eat and drink.

 

Hotels & Bed & Breakfasts have not yet fully opened for bookings (due to lack of staff and Kitchens and bars may not be open). Some Cafes and Pubs are opening with distancing restrictions and only with outside seating. Many insist on pre-booking for meals (to control numbers in a room). Restrictions may come into force at a moments notice if dictated by National or local Governments.

IMPORTANT: Many places are NOT taking one night stays now.

ESSENTIAL: You should check the rules for returning to your own country from Britain (England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland).

Dear Philip, I just wanted to let you know that we have returned from our Thames Path trip and we enjoyed our tour very much. Everything worked out beautifully: the rail travel, our accommodations, luggage transfers all went off smoothly. We greatly appreciated your prompt service and professionalism. If anyone we know is interested in a touring company, we will highly recommend you and ExploreBritain.
