Get outside safely with new online tool from Ordnance Survey and Natural England


Two UK organisations, Ordnance Survey and Natural England, have joined forces to create a new website that compiles all the latest information on safely enjoying the great outdoors, a great resource for motorhomers, caravanners, campers, holidaymakers or daytrippers. 

The website, GetOutside, collates government advice on outdoor activities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It also offers advice from activity providers, landowners, parks authorities and more on how to get outside safely and responsibly. This includes social distancing policies in place, whether car parks and other facilities are open or closed, and if key sites remain closed.

Managing Director of Ordnance Survey Leisure, Nick Giles said: “This guide will save people time and hassle of searching through multiple websites to find out exactly where they can go and what they can do outdoors safely. It makes planning trips out before you go easier, so you can make the most of your time outside."

Amanda Craig, Director of Connecting People and Nature at Natural England, adds “We know that getting outdoors and active in natural places is really good for people’s physical health and mental wellbeing, particularly during this time. People need to know what is open, where they can go, and what they can do safely. These pages are a great source of information which we hope will give people an even better experience outdoors, whilst looking after nature by following the Countryside Code too.

Contributing organisations include: Forestry England, Cycling UK, Dartmoor National Park, The British Horse Society, British Canoeing, Disabled Ramblers, South West Coast Path Association, areas of outstanding natural beauty and county councils, with more being added on a daily basis.

Head to the Get Outside website for more information.
