Know Before You Go


2. Remember to Respect, Protect and Enjoy. Respect everyone around you, protect the environment and enjoy the great outdoors.


3. Avoid tourist hotspots where you can and check out local hidden gems instead. Find great local inspiration on our Inspire Me! page.


4. Be kind to staff and residents, and support local independent businesses where you can. Remember the past year has been challenging for everyone, and we are all trying to adapt to new measures where possible.


5. Look out for the We’re Good To Go mark – it shows businesses that are operating in line with government and public health COVID guidance.


6. Make sure you have a bank card; many outlets are currently only accepting cashless payments – and you don’t want to miss out on that ice cream!

7. Take hand sanitiser with you – you don’t know where will be open for you to wash your hands.


And here are a few more for you to bear in mind when exploring Shropshire’s outdoor spaces:

  • Let’s try our best to keep our outdoor spaces looking beautiful by putting all rubbish in the nearest bins or taking it home if bins are full.
  • Whilst enjoying the great outdoors more, you’re likely to come across wildlife. Try not to disturb them, or any farm animals for that matter. Keep your four-legged friend on a lead and remember to bag and bin any mess they leave behind.
  • Don’t use disposable barbecues as they risk causing wildfires – get a takeaway burger instead.
  • Stick to designated footpaths and follow local signage for restrictions on routes.

The countryside code contains advice for the public and landowners, making it easier for visitors to help respect, protect and enjoy the outdoors.
