Make Time to GetOutside

Get active outside

The outdoors is for everyone and we want to help you discover the best Britain has to offer and the benefits that outdoor activity can bring.

Keep connected with the outdoors and engaged with our natural environments with challenges, events and experiences bought to you by over 50 national organisations across the outdoor recreation industry.

Make sure you plan outings, be aware of the risks and don't attempt any activity you are not familiar with. Let's keep everyone safe and follow government guidance at all times.

Keep up to date with the best of the British outdoors by following us on social media.
