I have to be honest I find this list a bit odd. Surely a visit to a museum is one of those unnecessary journeys that we are not supposed to be making at the moment?

Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington has closed the main hangar and the control tower and various other buildings but you can pop in and have a look around the outdoor exhibits and garden areas. I understand that there is no charge for this, just an honesty box to make a donation.
