When can I travel to Wales on holiday? 

Wales will scrap its "stay local" guidance Monday July 6 provided there is no spike in Covid-19. 

Under current measures, Brits in England are banned from staying overnight.

But that could change within weeks as the nation looks to reopen its hospitality sector from July 6.

Bookings can be made from Monday July 13.

Will hotels, caravan sites and holiday cottages be open?

Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford, who announced the lockdown on BBC Radio 5 Live.

He said: ’ll be saying today to our tourism sector that they should use the next three weeks to prepare so that beyond that, self-contained accommodation will be able to reopen in Wales.

"People will be able to travel to holiday cottages or static caravans or hotels that are organised on a self-contained basis”.

Which Welsh tourist attractions are open?

Mr Drakeford did clarify a date for reopening attractions in Wales. 

But last week Welsh Government economy minister Ken Skates said attractions across Wales could reopen in the summer, but only if it is safe and viable to do so.

That came after pressure from attractions in the nation to follow England’s lead. 

In Facebook posts by the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay and Greenacres Animal Park in Mancot, desperate appeals for support were launched.

They said: "You may have heard the news that Boris Johnson announced that zoos and safari parks in England could reopen from June 15.

"This is tremendous news and we are thrilled for our friends in England.

"However, please note that this ruling does not apply to us. We still find ourselves unable to reopen.”
