Never fear though, for those of you planning a holiday in New York, you can still get up and close with a trip to Liberty Island. The island itself will still be open, and as most people don’t queue for the chance to go inside the statue you can still get this quintessential experience.

Take the Circle Line ferry from Battery Park in the south of Manhattan and you’ll see the Statue of Liberty where she has stood for 125 years. Looking backwards you’ll also get a great view of the Manhattan skyline, made famous in countless films and TV programmes.
