Service stations - are they closed?

We need to move in with family, who are a 6 hour drive away. We will drive overnight, but may need to stop frequently, to feed our baby.

Does anyone know what the service station situation is? We'd just need toilets, somewhere to park and ideally the ability to walk around outside a bit. Even walking around the car park would be fine.

Surely they're open for lorry drivers? Not entirely sure though

Of course there will be some form of service station open - as long as the motorways are open, they will need to be. Think of all the lorry drivers that are still travelling. There will just be a reduced service from shops and cafes inside.

Why not check the websites of service stations on your route, eg Moto. Good luck with the move.

They’re all open, according to my colleagues not furloughed who drive from Manchester to Heathrow.

They are open just google the ones specific to your journey and they will have information on what facilities are available.

I went to one 2 weeks ago - the loos and WH Smith was open and the Costa self service machines inside Smiths - that was it - take food!

Yes. Loos and the M&S and WHSmith. You can't sit down inside.
