Can I travel to Wales? Country opens up to English holidaymakers from today


HOLIDAYS in Wales can go ahead from today as English tourists can now cross the border.

Here is everything you need to know about a holiday to the country.

What are the current travel rules in England?

Holidays can now go ahead in England, with self-catered properties opening to single-households.

This includes caravan parks, campsites and other accommodation without shared facilities.

Outdoor attractions such as theme parks have opened from today too.

Hotels have not yet opened - this will change from May 17.

What are the current travel rules in Wales?

The "rule of thumb" five-miles travel limit was lifted on March 27, allowing people to travel anywhere within the country.

Self-contained holiday accommodation, including hotels with en-suite bathrooms, have already re-opened.

Can I travel from England to Wales?

Yes, holidays across the border can now go ahead from England to Wales.

Wales allowed holidays before England, but still banned travelling over the border - this has been lifted from today.

This means English tourists can visit Wales, but must still follow local guidelines.

While hotels and group holidays hope to go ahead from May 17, international trips may be further behind.

Due to the third Covid wave sweeping Europe, many holiday hotspots may not be open to Brits until the summer.

A new traffic light system confirmed by the government hopes to open up low-risk destinations to UK travellers.
