Blackpool Launches “Know Before You Go” Reassurance Campaign
Are you ready? We are!
Blackpool has officially reopened its doors to tourists after more than 100 days of lockdown with a message of reassurance.
Many of the resort’s key attractions, hotels, restaurants and bars have are now open to the public - including us!
VisitBlackpool has created a Know Before You Go online platform to give visitors an insight into the range of measures that are being taken to ensure their safety and enjoyment.
One of the resort’s big attractions, Blackpool Zoo, was the first to open its doors on Monday 29 June. That will be followed this weekend with the opening of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, part of The Blackpool Tower, the SEA LIFE Centre, Madame Tussauds, piers and amusement centres along the famous Golden Mile.
The Know Before You Go section on the visitblackpool.com website provides detailed information on what tourism businesses are putting in place to meet Government guidelines around hygiene and safe distancing.
These include reduced capacity, allocated time slots, managed queuing areas, enhanced cleaning regimes, and extensive staff training.
VisitEngland has also launch the new We’re Good To Go industry standard that we're a part of. The scheme is aimed at giving visitors the confidence that all guidelines are being adhered to. Within hours of it being launched, a number of Blackpool’s key attractions had already secured the accreditation.
The Know Before You Go advance guidance includes:
Comprehensive information on what each of the attractions has put in place to keep visitors safe including new ticket booking information
Descriptions of the way in which hotels, bars and restaurants are being remodelled to ensure a COVID-safe environment
Advice on how visitors can enjoy Blackpool’s wide open spaces and avoid social distancing problems, as well as reminders to keep the resort’s promenade and beaches litter-free
Information on additional safety measures that have been put in place to reassure visitors including a new cashless PayByPhone app that means users can pay for parking across most Council car parks without leaving their vehicle to queue at pay machines.
