Full list of places that can reopen on Monday as rule of six returns

The country will take another step forward along the roadmap out of lockdown on Monday (March 29) with the reopening of a number of businesses and places.

Last month Boris Johnson unveiled a four-stage plan to lift coroanvirus restrictions and get the country up and running again and on the path to economic and social recovery.

The first part saw children return to schools on March 8 along with permission to meet up with a family member or friend outdoors for a coffee on a park bench or a picnic.

In just a few days time the second part of the Prime Minister’s lockdown exit plan will come into effect with the ‘Rule of Six’ returning. This means six people – or two households – can mingle outdoors for the first time in months.

A number of businesses and outdoor venues will also be permitted to open again, including golf courses, tennis and basketball pitches, outdoor swimming pools and more.

However indoor sport centres, including gyms, will not be allowed to welcome customers back until April 12, while exercise classes inside are banned until mid-May.

Non-essential shops are expected to finally reopen from April 12, alongside hairdressers and barbers.

Pubs will also be able to serve punters outdoors from this date.

All restrictions will finally be lifted from June 21, with nightclubs planning huge two-day parties to celebrate the event.
