    Travelling/staying in Wales

    I live in Derbyshire and could do with some advice on two counts please...

    Can I travel into Wales for a day out?
    and
    Can my wife and I travel to relatives in Pembrokeshire and stay at their house for 3/4 days?
    thanks...

    England is in the common travel area so you're fine to visit.
    From today aswell, households in Wales can extend their bubble to include a 3rd household, so you could qualify under that rule as long as your relatives haven't already extended their bubble.

    You can travel into Wales for more than a day out.

    England doesn't count as 'foreign' or 'from abroad' in this situation - part of a common travel area as The Bloop says.

    We came back on Friday to Sheffield from two and a half weeks in Pembrokeshire - walking the coastal path and staying in B&Bs. That all became possible from 17 May. It is not a free for all and the standard precautions apply (distancing, hygiene, masks etc) and most B&Bs and hotels have got stringent systems in place to minimise any risk (reduced capacity, one-way routes, extra ventilation).

    For the first time in the UK we had temperature checks in restaurants (only a minority - but never had that before in any shop or pub up our way after the restrictions were eased) and one place in Pembroke even did a smelling salts check to see if we had a Covid symptom we were hiding!

    The social gathering and bubble rules are covered in the link IanD posted.
