Brits were also told they could only leave the house for exercise like a walk or a jog, to go work if they are a key worker and to buy essential items such as food or medicine.
Police have been given powers to arrest people flouting the lockdown mandate as well as issue fines.
Mr Johnson said this lockdown is going to be imposed for at least three weeks - but didn't rule out extending it if necessary.
