Gosport MP, Caroline Dinenage, is celebrating local tourist attractions and entertainment venues this English Tourism Week (22 - 31 May 2021) and encouraging constituents to get involved.
Following the pandemic where many attractions have had to close their doors, visitors are being warmly welcomed back in restaurants, bars, pubs, cinemas and venues across Gosport, Hill Head, Stubbington and Lee-on-the-Solent.
This week on her social media, Caroline is looking to highlight the brilliant local attractions that are open for all the family from the Mary Rose Museum, to the award-winning Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. In addition, residents and visitors can enjoy meeting in groups of 30 on local beaches or stay in hotels, self-catering accommodation or B&Bs since they have reopened.
“After such a tough year, its brilliant to see our local attractions open for the whole family this English Tourism Week.
“From learning more about the history of our Navy through the Mary Rose, Victory, Warrior & Submarine Museum to visiting the award-winning, interactive Explosion! museum, there is plenty to see and do across Gosport, Hill Head, Stubbington and Lee-on-the-Solent and beyond.”
VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:
“Our annual event to celebrate and champion English tourism has never been more important, providing a timely opportunity to show the outstanding offer here on our doorstep as we head in to the critical summer season and to support local businesses and visitor attractions, who have lost months of vital trading, as they reopen and rebuild.
“Millions of jobs and local economies rely on tourism and businesses and destinations have been working flat-out, innovating and adapting to safely welcome visitors back and making sure they have a great experience. They will be very pleased to see you.”
