Free Open Spaces

Many parks, beaches, forests and open spaces have started to re-open. Everyone is keen to get out and about again and embrace our little bit of freedom in nature so here is our top list of regional open spaces to enjoy and visit safely. Note: It is our responsibility to follow guidance and remain safe outside the home. Please make sure you check your destination is open before you travel and be prepared to turn around if necessary. If car parks start to look too full then access may be limited so you will need to visit another time. Many open spaces are also being opened gradually to ensure the safety of visitors and to avoid a sudden surge in traffic.
