A TREE-top adventure playground is getting ready to welcome back visitors this weekend.

Castle Howard's Skelf Island will reopen tomorrow (Saturday) with new "Skelf and Safety" measures in place.

Abbigail Ollive, head of marketing and sales at Castle Howard, said: “We have been eagerly awaiting the announcement from the Government confirming that playgrounds across the country can reopen.

"We have been working hard to put our reopening plans into action, ensuring new rules aid social/physical distancing, but whilst ensuring our visitors have plenty of fun.

"We are delighted to be welcoming back visitors to Skelf Island over the coming weeks.”

The Castle Howard gardens reopened to the public last month. All visitors are required to pre-book tickets online via the Castle Howard website for capacity management purposes and will then self-scan at the Ticket Office to have contactless entry to the Gardens.
