Can I drive to the countryside for a walk?

“Exercise must involve some movement, but it is acceptable for a person to stop for a break in exercise,” the guidance states.

“However, a very short period of ‘exercise’ to excuse a long period of inactivity may mean that the person is not engaged in ‘exercise’ but in fact something else.”

This means driving to the countryside for a walk is permitted, provided more time is spent walking that travelling.

However, the government is advising people to remain local when exercising if they can.
