Visiting with confidence

It’s really important to us that you’re able to visit your museums with confidence. We’re continuing to take steps to keep all our visitors and staff safe.

When you enter

  • Face coverings must be worn inside the Workshop buildings, unless exempt
  • Please use the hand sanitiser station as you enter
  • Make space for other visitors and staff and keep younger visitors with you during your visit
  • Check-in to support the NHS Test & Trace programme
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, please don’t visit Shepherd Wheel

We’re helping you visit safely by

  • Limiting the number of visitors on site
  • Hand sanitiser available on arrival
  • Closing the workshop buildings to visitors for now – you’ll still be able to see the workings and speak to the engineer through the windows and doorways
