England is currently in National Lockdown: Stay at Home.

England is currently in National Lockdown: Stay at Home which means that all non-essential businesses including, non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, entertainment, leisure and sports venues and facilities, animal and indoor attractions, are closed for the general public. 

Food and drink hospitality businesses can remain open for takeaway delivery and collection services only. View our list of Lincoln and Lincolnshire businesses offering takeaway services here.

Essential retail will remain open, and all other retail is open for online shopping. Visit Shop Lincoln to shop local online during the lockdown. 

Accommodation is available for anyone in exceptional circumstances. Read more about the restrictions and guidance on staying overnight away from your home.

We advise that you check all the services available and businesses open before you travel, as some services may be temporarily closed or have different operating timetables and opening times. 

Please be aware that it is the law that you must wear a face-covering when travelling in England on public transport and entering a public indoor space. Keep up to date with the UK Government social distancing guidelines on their website here.

Know Before You Go

Here, we are collating a list of businesses who are open for business as essential retailers and offering services in line with Government guidelines and Public Health Guidance.

As lockdown restrictions update and guidance changes we are constantly updating information but, we do advise you check directly with the business for specific Covid Secure information, and look out for the 'Good To Go' Covid Compliant tag and banner on their business listing page within this website. 

“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing when they are able to reopen fully again.

Please do remember to stay alert when you leave home: washing your hands regularly, maintaining social distancing guidelines and follow the UK Government guidance on staying safe outside your home.
