Restrictions on travel to Wales have been lifted as family and friends are able to reunite and enjoy outside attractions.

The “stay local” guidance, telling people to stay within five miles of home, is over, there are no travel restrictions.

External attractions have also been allowed to open, with owners saying they were “thrilled” to return.

The two families will be able to stay indoors and together overnight.

This relaxation of the lockdown restriction comes as the number of coronavirus cases continues.

But Prime Minister Mark Drakeford urged people to think carefully about “where we go and why we go.”

Mr Drakeford called on people to follow the “golden rules” if further restrictions were lifted:

  • Work from home whenever possible
  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • Keep away from other people – the two-meter rule still applies in Wales
  • Wash your hands often
  • Meet people from another family outside the home

Zip World says social distances can be easily applied to its “huge” site

Zip World says the relaunch of Bethesda and the North Wales sites in Bethesda-Y-Code was “thrilling”, although a few other attractions are now closed.

“Our huge outdoor space and the self-contained nature of our site naturally enables them to take socially responsible steps, which means we can create a safer environment for locals and visitors in the area,” said a spokesman for the adventure agency.

With the reopening of Snowdon, Snowdonia National Park launched a social media campaign to make visitors aware of how to protect themselves and protect wildlife.

In Lalnorth, staff at the National Botanic Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire, which celebrated its 20th birthday during the lockdown, said they were confident of safety.

“Many thanks to all our members, visitors, staff, volunteers, friends and everyone for sticking with us during this strange and difficult time,” they said.

“With 586 acres [230 hectares], We are more than confident we can accept all social-distance directions but you will notice some changes that are designed to keep everyone safe. “

They asked visitors to expect rows because they carefully controlled the flow of visitors

With the end of restrictions, Tennyson is one of the places to expect visitors

Travel bans were introduced across the UK at the start of the lockdown in March, although Wales held its travel bans longer than England as the UK government.

Wales tourist hotspots – such as Tenby in Pembrokeshire – were preparing to arrive after the ban was lifted.

Mayor Sam Skyram-Blackhall acknowledged that there was a hesitation in balancing the needs of the local economy startup as well as maintaining security for both locals and visitors.

“Right now it’s very worrying – obviously people are very worried, but there are two sides to it – people want to be safe, but we also need to support our business,” he said.

“Tenny relies heavily on tourism, which in turn creates jobs for the local community. If we are not allowed to open, there will not be a lot of jobs in the winter and a lot of business will close.”
