General manager Dr Mike Galer said: “The same Covid-19 measures will be in place as we operated last season, including social distancing, hand sanitizing, PPE for staff, screens at information points and tills and takeaway catering service, with some outside seating.”

The trams, which are crewed by a team of volunteers, will be limited, and face coverings should be worn as per the national guidance for public transport.

Members of the public will need to book a timed ticket for tram rides on arrival, and there will only be one stop for getting on and alighting the trams, to help ensure the safety of passengers, volunteers and staff.

In line with other venues, the indoor exhibitions, tram depot and soft play area will remain closed.

Marketing manager Amanda Blair said: “For the period between April 12 and May 16, we have introduced special day rates, which are payable on arrival. Visitors who still have valid annual tickets or annual membership may use these to return”.
