Our Guide to Open Access Land in England and Wales
What is "Open Access land"?
However, despite being labelled as a "right to roam", it isn't really - not like in Scotland. It is a right to roam on land which has been designated Open Access, and not any land. Even in Open Access land, there are exceptions - and temporary restrictions may apply at certain times of the year.
What you can and can’t do on Open Access land
If Open Access land is temporarily restricted , it will be clearly signposted at the boundary of that area of land with signs.
Such restrictions are also available to be searched in advance on the web.
In England, use Natural England's search function here. Natural Resources Wales are working on a new system to show where Open Access restrictions are, and so this information isn't available online at the moment, but should eventually be available here.
