The Look Out Discovery Centre statement about coronavirus

Updated 23 March 2020

The Look Out and Coral Reef car parks are now closed as a precautionary measure after warm weekend weather attracted unsafe numbers.

The car parks will be closing to the public from Monday 23 March and will not reopen until further notice.

The Look Discovery Centre including the hand-on science exhibition and coffee shop already closed last week, in line with government requirements.

The Crown Estate has confirmed pedestrian access to the surrounding Swinley Forest will be allowed for the time being but no cycling is permitted until further notice.

We ask the public please do not drive to The Look Out or Coral Reef. There is no parking, and penalties for illegal parking on surrounding roads will be enforced by local authorities and the police.

We continue to prioritise the ongoing safety of our staff, visitors and the wider community and reflect on the latest government and Public Health advice.

If you do decide to visit us at this time, we ask all visitors to abide by the latest advice from the NHS.

We would like to thank our customers for their support and understanding during this unprecedented time.
