Our Latest Campaign #HereAllYear
Visit Exmoor are working hard to deliver our #HereAllYear campaign highlighting off-peak travel to the area. We will be promoting activities, events including the Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2021, family friendly weekend day trips, autumn walking and the many reasons to visit throughout the seasons.
We want visitors to have the best possible experience and we will continue to use #BookAhead as it will still be important, as we go into the shoulder season, for visitors to book activities, experiences and restaurants ahead to avoid disappointment.
The #VisitExmoorSafely hashtag will be a campaign feature for the foreseeable future reminding visitors to adhere to local Covid precautions in our towns and villages and to follow The Exmoor Covid Countryside Code.
