Leading tourist attraction benefits from Leisure & Hospitality Grant scheme

There is no doubt that the hospitality and leisure industry has taken a huge blow during the pandemic. 

After a difficult year, many tourist attractions are looking to the effect the pandemic has had on their business and trade.

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, Doncaster’s leisure and tourist attractions have had to close their doors, on more than one occasion, as well as adjust to new rules.

It has been frustrating for any business to adapt and make it as safe as possible for staff and customers, so the latest Outdoor Leisure & Hospitality Grant supported by Doncaster Council via Business Doncaster has provided a welcome boost to help finance new outdoor tables, seating, umbrellas and a gazebo for hosting small events at the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum.

Based on the former RAF Doncaster site, the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum hosts a vast collection of aircraft and helicopters from the first years of flight, right up to the modern day.

From the biplanes flown at the 1909 Doncaster Airshow (the First airshow held in the UK) to Military fast Jets like the Harrier and Meteor and Civil light aircraft seen around the world.

Whether it is bright sunshine or pouring rain, the Museum is now a great attraction whatever the weather! With a small café and shop, there is also indoor and outdoor seating spread around the site. Why not take a picnic and extend your stay?

After a difficult and unprecedented year, Doncaster’s tourist attractions are very much looking forward to a brighter future and are enjoying being able to welcome their customers back.
