Step 2 of the roadmap out of lockdown from 12 April

From the 12 April, England has moved to step 2 of the roadmap out of national lockdown.

Below is a short explanation of what is changing:

Business and activities

Opening of non-essential retail; personal care premises such as hairdressers and nail salons; and public buildings, including libraries and community centres.

Indoor leisure facilities such as gyms (but only for use by people on their own or in household groups)

Most outdoor attractions and settings including outdoor hospitality venues, zoos, theme parks, and drive-in cinemas.

Self-contained accommodation such as campsites and holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households.

Hospitality venues will be allowed to serve people outdoors and there will be no need for customers to order a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks and no curfew, although customers must order, eat and drink while seated (‘table service’).


Funerals can continue with up to 30 mourners.

Weddings, receptions and commemorative events such as wakes can take place with up to 15 people.
