Just a quick update about how the recent Swansea lockdown announcement affects holidays and travel in the Swansea and Gower area.To answer your questions as to whether or not holidaymakers can come on holiday to Swansea and Gower:The Welsh Government guidelines can be found by following this link:https://gov.wales/coronavirus-regulations-guidance#section-44647 Tourism is covered under the section “Visiting Places”.May we draw your attention specifically to the section titled:“Can I go on holiday in Wales” – a screenshot of which is below:
Please note where they say “Tourism is hugely important to Wales and there are no legalrestrictions on people travelling to parts of Wales which are NOT underthese local restrictions.”
The conclusion that we draw from all of this is that holidaymakers are notallowed to come into Gower/Swansea on holiday once the restriction is in placeon Sunday 27/09/20, until such time as the lockdown is lifted again.
Of course, this restriction does not prevent holidaymakers from bookingaccommodation that they hope will be available at some point later in 2020or for 2021. Let’s hope that the restrictions can be lifted soon.
