Coronavirus COVID-19 update

24 March 2020

Following Government guidance on Coronavirus COVID-19 we have temporarily closed many of our venues and services (find out more here). We’re monitoring the situation closely and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it’s safe to do so.

While our venues are closed, you may want to visit Lee Valley Regional Park’s open spaces. If you do, you must follow the latest Government advice on social distancing. While the park is a great place to walk, run or cycle, to enjoy nature and recharge, you must be responsible: do not meet up with friends, only visit with people you live with and only come once a day. 
Being outside is good for you, but social distancing is essential for everyone’s health. If an area looks busy, go somewhere else.

Keep safe and stay well.
