Make Time to GetOutside

Get active outside

The outdoors is still open! And we want to help you discover the best Britain has to offer and the benefits that outdoor activity can bring.

Although there's no sign of COVID-19 going away just yet, we wanted to assure you that the outdoors is as safe a place as any, that everyone can enjoy. Take in the beautiful colours of autumn and the crisp winter mornings to come. Make a start by joining the GetOutside Challenge and tick off a bit of outdoor fun each day with our free downloadable activity calendar.

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

Be sure to 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.
