Under national lockdown restrictions in the UK, which takes effect from 5 January 2021, travel is not permitted and staying away from home is limited to a handful of exemptions. 

Hotels, B&Bs and apartments across NewcastleGateshead (alongside the rest of England) have been told to close to leisure visitors as outlined in the government's guidelines for staying away from home and holidays

If your holiday or city break is on hold, we're sorry to hear that but hope you are safe and well so that you're ready to travel once allowed. 

However, there are some government exemptions to the rule about staying away from home which means that some hotels in NewcastleGateshead continue to stay open under a national lockdown. If you are in need of a hotel due to essential work commitments, or you're staying away from home because you're in the middle of a move, find out where is open. 

The government announced a road map for easing lockdown in England which included projected dates for reopening hotels and allowing overnight stays and holidays in the UK. Dates are subject to government review and are dependent on the progress of stopping the spread of coronavirus.

  • From 12 April: Self-contained holiday accommodation can be booked for households only
  • From 17 May: Hotels will reopen
  • From 21 June: No restrictions on social contact so holidays and travel can resume as normal

Please do check directly with the hotel you wish to visit before you book so that you are fully aware of what is available at individual venues and any up-to-date information or restrictions before you go.
