Haven holiday parks reopen today – here's how pools, entertainment and food & drink will be different to usual

HAVEN parks are reopening from today – and have revealed what guests can expect when staying.

The holiday parks are welcoming families back from next week but will have some restrictions in place.

The restrictions currently only allow one household to go away together, which will increase from May.

This includes self-catered accommodation, including campsites – as those with shared toilets and showers are allowed to reopen from today, thanks to a last minute u-turn from the government.

Indoor entertainment, which includes arcades and Show Bars will not reopen at the same time as the park, due to lockdown rules, and will reopen from May 17.

This is also dependent on lockdown restrictions being lifted, which will be confirmed by the government.

Other indoor activities will also be restricted when they reopen with social distancing and reduced capacity, including restaurants and other entertainment venues.

Guests will have to book their tables at cafes and restaurants through the My Haven app or online, and must be reserved beforehand so cannot turn up for meals.

Similar to last year, swimming sessions must also be prebooked, with slots opening a week in advance of guests staying.

Capacity will also be restricted to 40 per cent to allow guests to social distance, although aqua parks remain closed.

Only guests who have booked Stay+Play packages will be able to use the amenities.

Depending on the UK Covid situation, the parks hope to return back to more normality by June 21.

Last year's Indeed, Clean and Safe charter is also returning, with extra emphasis on cleaning both caravans and shared areas in the parks.

We headed to Haven last year to see what the new restrictions were like – here is what you can expect.

We've also rounded up some great Haven holiday deals.

A UK holiday is in demand this year due to travel uncertainty for overseas holidays, with some great alternatives across Britain.
