As businesses begin to reopen, we’re looking forward to welcoming you back to Britain’s Ocean City – but your visit might be different to usual.

You’ll find there are lots of additional safety measures in place in the city centre and across the waterfront to help keep you safe. There are also steps you can take to protect yourself and others from the spread of coronavirus.


Check what’s open

Not all businesses will be reopening at the same time, and some may have reduced opening hours, so check before you visit. You’ll probably need to book in advance for lots of places, including attractions and restaurants.

You can find out what businesses are open by visiting Shop4Plymouth for shops and Visit Plymouth for hotels, accommodation and attractions, keeping an eye on our social media channels or by checking the individual businesses’ website and social media before you visit


Follow the rules

Businesses will have new processes in place to keep you safe – this might include one-way and queueing systems, screens and changes to how you order or pay. Please make sure you follow these guidelines and be patient.


Stay safe in Plymouth    

Public transport

You should consider all other forms of transport before using public transport. If you do choose to travel, we would advise staying up-to-date via transport provider’s websites and social media to check which services are running. Please remember that, in line with Government legislation, you must wear a face covering on board.


Car parks

Machines in Plymouth City Council car parks and on-street parking will no longer take cash, with visitors required to pay by credit/debit card or by using RingGo, via the mobile phone app, website or by phone (this excludes the multi-storeys which are credit and debit card only).


Public toilets

Public toilets around the waterfront and the city centre have reopened and other temporary toilets have been installed to help maintain safe distancing:

  • Armada Way disabled toilets (above ground, near the Sundial)
  • Six toilets opposite the Tourist Information Centre are open until 10pm each day and are currently free
  • Elphinstone car park toilets now open and currently free
  • Six temporary toilets are available on the Hoe promenade (Hoe Rd side) opposite Valenti's Cafe  
  • Six temporary toilets are available at West Hoe Park
  • Three temporary toilets are available near Three Crowns Pub on the Barbican

Disabled toilets remain available to customers who have access to a RADAR key. 


Social distancing    

Social distancing

While you’re exploring Plymouth, whether you’re enjoying the outdoors or browsing in shops, please follow social distancing guidelines and try to keep two metres away from other people. If you can, wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth in situations when it's hard to stay two metres away from people.

Remember to wash your hands regularly, or use hand sanitiser when you’re out and about.


Be safe

If you or anyone in your household has symptoms of coronavirus, please stay at home and self-isolate.   

You can find all the Government’s latest coronavirus guidance on the website.

    I thoroughly enjoy playing online casino games, but I'm also looking forward to visiting Plymouth to experience the excitement of playing in a physical casino there. While online casinos offer convenience and accessibility, there's something special about the atmosphere and thrill of a land-based casino. Playing in online casinos not only brings joy to me but also to many others, as it provides entertainment and excitement for people worldwide. Whether it's the thrill of winning or simply enjoying the games, online casinos offer a unique and enjoyable experience for all players. If you're looking to uncover the finest casinos, you can also browse through reputable review sites like and gaming forums to find recommendations that suit your preferences.
