Summer is well underway, your favourite shops (and zoos!) are reopening, and heading outdoors seems more appealing than ever.

VisitEngland, along with the other tourist organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the UK government, has launched a new industry standard mark as a way of supporting tourism businesses and providing reassurance to visitors.
