Can I travel to Wales now? Latest travel advice following lockdown announcement

A HOLIDAY in the UK is what many families are looking forward to when restrictions lift.

Here is everything you need to know about a holiday to Wales later this year.

Can I go on holiday to Wales right now?

No – the UK is currently in lockdown which bans all non-essential travel.

When can I go on holiday to Wales?

This depends on which part of the country you live in.

Welsh people will be able to go on domestic holidays from March 29 within Wales, and to self-contained accommodation.

This means families can book in an Easter break.

However, English tourists will not be allowed back during this date as the restrictions do not lift until April 12.

Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford told BBC's Today programme: "At Easter time, Welsh people will be able to travel for holidays over Easter within Wales, and to self-contained accommodation.

"The rules in England will not permit that. The Prime Minister's roadmap says that for the weeks after March 29, people should minimise travel, there are to be no holidays, and people won't be allowed to stay away from home overnight.

"If it won't be safe to stay overnight in England, then obviously it would not be safe for people to travel into Wales.

UK holidays are booming due to the uncertainty regarding travelling abroad, with some sites 90 per cent sold out already.

According to the Telegraph, self-catered accommodation website Unique Homestays has warned that 92 per cent of summer holiday dates are booked up, with Oliver's Travels has just eight per cent of properties still available during the summer season.
