Business have been working hard on implementing the new ‘Covid-safe’ guidance with support and advice from Buckinghamshire Council, so you can be sure of a safe and enjoyable time when you visit Aylesbury. You might find some businesses have added the new ‘We’re Good To Go’ logo onto their venue window or website. This is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

Take a look below at what some local businesses are doing differently.

Rhapsody Hairdressing team in visors smilingRhapsody Hairdressing is a great example of what to expect when going for that much-needed cut and colour. As you can see, they can’t wait to see you back!

You’ll get a phone consultation after you book and a cheery welcome from a distance instead of a hug or handshake on arrival. After you’ve washed your hands, if you want a magazine while you’re waiting you’ll need to bring your own, and once you’re in your chair you’ll notice a Perspex screen between you and other customers.

But although the experience is a little different, the lovely team will ensure your hair will look gorgeous once again. Learn more about their measures here and watch their video here. Slots are available, you’ll need to book online or phone in advance.


If you’re after a meal, take Miya Japanese Grill and Bar for instance. Changes they’ve made include spacing tables, a one-way system and thorough cleaning.  You can enjoy the food in a tranquil and safe venue inside or out. Miya have made a walk-through video of the changes here, so take a look to be reassured they have everything covered.
