Coronavirus - Guidance on access to green spaces

 

Do not travel to different parts of the UK if the rules in that country do not allow you to.

 

In England, you can:

 

drive to outdoor open spaces, including beaches and beauty spots in a private vehicle, alone or with members of your own household or support bubble

visit gardens, nature reserves and parkland - access may be limited to members or those with tickets so you should check ahead

swim in lakes or the sea where it's safe to do so - you cannot use public indoor and outdoor swimming pools

take part in water sports on open waterways, including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, rowing, kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding

use privately-owned motorised craft (in line with the guidance issued by the relevant navigation authority)

use towpaths for walking, running and cycling, being mindful of other users and people living in boats

visit outdoor animal attractions

You must follow social distancing guidelines when spending time outdoors. You should avoid public transport other than for essential journeys. Buildings and amenities will remain closed.

 

You can travel any distance to get to the countryside, but you cannot stay overnight. Campsites and caravan parks are closed so you cannot visit them. You cannot stay in a holiday home or second home.

 

To stay safe, you should:

 

take hygiene precautions when you are outside

wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors

keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household or support bubble

take hand sanitiser with you in case there are no handwashing facilities
