Hotels across England have been closed for leisure purposes since January 4 when Boris Johnson announced the third national lockdown.
Last month the Prime Minister confirmed his roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions.
From today people will now be able to meet up legally outdoors in groups of six or in two households, including in private gardens.
The ‘Stay At Home’ message in England also ends but people are being warned to keep travel down to a minimum.
For those keen to get away – holidays and overnight stays won’t be allowed until at least, April 12.
Although overnight stays are still permitted in certain circumstances such as work, study, moving house or attending a wedding or funeral.
It has also been reported summer holidays abroad are unlikely to be allowed until August due to rising COVID-19 infection rates in Europe.
