Rediscover the Geopark
Please note the English Riviera is now in Tier 3 and the Geopark partner sites are adhering to the relevant restrictions.
All of the Geopark partners are keen to see you again but please note that not all sites will re-open at the same time and for many you will now need to pre-book so please remember to plan ahead, contact individual partners direct before you visit and follow Government guidance during your time with us.
To help your visit, the Geopark has created a number of Visual Guides that will provide you with all the information you need in advance of visiting. The guides are available below next to the partner site name.
For the latest advice and opening in line with Govt Guidance please visit the English Riviera destination website here and the individual partner sites.
Special arrangements for those over 70 or who were shielding during the first lockdown
The prehistoric caves at Kents Cavern are offering exclusive guided tours specifically for vulnerable people when the national lockdown ends this week.
Tours for vulnerable people will run midweek at 14:30 every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from December until February. Pre-booking is essential and must be done by email email@example.com or by telephone 01803 215136 at least 48 hours in advance. Bookings will be on a first come first served basis.
A tour must have a minimum of two people and the maximum is six. Everyone in the group must be from the same household or bubble. Your tour guide will be the only person in the cave not from your bubble, and they will be socially distanced from you and wearing PPE throughout the visit.
All vulnerable groups will have a Covid-secure table reserved in the restaurant, with screens shielding them from any other groups of people. A coffee shop menu will be available with table service.
Face-coverings must be worn in the visitor centre, restaurant and in the cave. Face-shields are acceptable alternatives for those who cannot wear facemasks.
