You are permitted to go outdoors to exercise in your local area once a day. You must exercise alone, with your household, with your support bubble or with one other person.
Where can you go in lockdown?
Going outdoors for recreation is not permitted- this must be for exercise. Note recreational picnics are not permitted, although it seems to indicate that if you were to take sustenance on a longer walk for example, that would be permitted.
Playgrounds are remaining open for children to exercise.
Local parks and countryside
Public gardens and grounds of heritage sites are also permitted to remain open
