Heritage sites across Leicestershire are due to welcome back visitors from this week.
The sites – which are all run by Leicestershire County Council – have been closed since the end of March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Today (Mon, 7 Sep), the doors re-open at the award-winning Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre, which recently held a ‘virtual’ Medieval Festival.
Harborough Museum re-opens on Wednesday (9th Sep) with the 1620s House & Garden at Donington-le-Heath and Melton Carnegie Museum due to open on Thursday (10th Sep). Charnwood Museum re-opened towards the end of last month.
We’re delighted that we are now able to re-open our heritage sites and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to enjoy them.
Our priority is to ensure that the attractions are safe for visitors and staff. What remains the same is that we want people to come along and have an enjoyable time with us – as well as staying safe.Person:Richard Blunt, county council cabinet member for heritage, leisure and arts
