Significant new measures and protocols will continue to be in operation at both Blackgang Chine and Robin Hill, including capacity limits which mean booking online in advance is strongly advised.

Both parks have received positive feedback following the implementation of their COVID-safe protocols and will continue to improve and develop these alongside Government guidelines. Measures include the addition of hand sanitiser stations, social distancing markers, one-way systems, temperature checks upon entry, face coverings required in certain areas and more.

Likely be sheeting with raining and blowing a gale by then. Best buy on the gate, if at all.


Not if this virus gets its way.

What a happy pair you two are! My goodness you really are putting a downer on this. At least they are trying to keep people in work and give kids something to do in the holidays!
