Sites re-opening

Some Wheels of Time sites are announcing their intention to re-open after the UK Government confirms the next stage of its recovery plan.

The great majority of sites have told us that if they re-open it will be for reduced hours. For many sites the opening hours are likely to change as recovery progresses. Please check directly the websites and, where they have them, social media accounts of museums and heritage sites before leaving home. We will not be able to maintain details of opening times on the Wheels of Time website.

The number of visitors that most sites will be able to accommodate will be reduced.

Most sites will be relying on a smaller number of volunteers or staff which could result in sites being unable to open unexpectedly if a member of staff falls ill.

The following sites have announced opening dates, these are dependent on there being no changes to Government plans:

Lashenden Air Warfare Museum: 4th July 2020

Maidstone Museum: 14th July 2020

Roamin’ Rex Awards

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic we have made some changes to our Awards for 2020.

Roamin’ Rex Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards will continue to be available for children who have visited 10, 20 and 30 sites respectively. The Awards will be posted direct to childrens’ homes instead of being presented at a Wheels of Time site. The Awards can be requested using our online form

We would like parents to to take their children to a Wheels of Time site, after receiving the awards to take a photograph of their child with their award. We would really appreciate you sharing the photograph on Facebook tagging @WheelsOfTime or on Twitter tagging @RoaminRex.

Because we don’t know yet how many sites will re-open, we will decide whether to make a Wheels of Time 2020 Award available late in 2020 or early 2021.
