Christmas Bubble

Christmas arrangements 

A single set of UK-wide measures to help you come together with your loved ones in a way that is as safe as possible has been agreed.

This means:

  • Travel restrictions between tiers will be lifted to provide a window for households to come together between 23 and 27 December.
  • Up to three households can form an exclusive ‘bubble’ to meet at home during this period. When a bubble is formed it is fixed, and must not be changed or extended further at any point.
  • Each Christmas bubble can meet at home, at a place of worship or an outdoor public place, but existing, more restrictive rules on hospitality and meeting in other venues will be maintained throughout this period.
