With a three-day weekend looming and the weather set to continue to be warm and sunny, many families will be hoping to get out and about.

But social distancing rules are still in place, so it's important that, wherever you go, you stay two metres away from people outside your household.

We've rounded up the best parks and outside spaces for you to enjoy a fun, relaxed and responsible bank holiday weekend.

Cassiobury Park, Watford

Cassiobury is an ever popular park but, with 190 acres to explore, it shouldn't be too difficult to stick to social distancing rules.

Steer clear of the canal paths, which are less than two metres wide, and instead opt for the large expanses of grass and woodland to make sure your walk is safe and fun.

Ashridge Estate

With this National Trust property's car park once again open to visitors, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the estate's wide open green spaces.

Spot fallow deer and ancient trees in the park, as well as a spectacular carpet of bluebells.

Leavesden Country Park

Leavesden Country Park is steeped in history, being located on the grounds of the former Leavesden Asylum and St Pancras Orphanage.

Now, there are over 110 acres to explore, including over 20 acres of woodland, so you should have no trouble keeping your distance from others.

Rickmansworth Aquadrome

A visit to the aquadrome may be a bit trickier during the coronavirus pandemic, as some of the paths around the area's three lakes are too narrow to allow for social distancing.

But with open areas of grass as well as woodland walks, you can still visit this famous local beauty spot.

Croxley Common Moor

A haven for wildlife, Croxley Common Moor is registered as a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the rarity of its plant life. It is also designated a Local Nature Reserve, offering families the chance to experience beautiful wildlife on their doorstep.

There are over 100 acres of historic grassland, with the River Gade running along the bottom of the moor, and the wide open spaces are perfect for responsible walking.

Chorleywood Common

Another Local Nature Nature rich in plant and animal wildlife, Chorleywood Common covers 80 hectares, which is the equivalent of 110 football pitches.

The Common offers a brilliant opportunity to see rabbits, squirrels, foxes, badgers, muntjac deer, mice and more in the wild.

Chess Valley

The Chess Valley Walk follows the River Chess for 10 miles from Rickmansworth to Chesham.

Passing through the beautiful scenery of the Chess Valley, a landscape rich in wildlife, you will discover the site of a Roman villa, pass the 13th century Chenies Manor and see the watercress beds at Sarratt.

Heartwood Forest

This 858-acre site in Sandridge, St Albans, is the largest continuous new native forest in England.

With pockets of ancient bluebell woodland, wildflower meadows and open grassland, the forest is at its most colourful between May and August.

Verulamium Park

This park in St Albans, named after the Roman city of Verulamium on which it stands, includes 100 acres of parkland and an ornamental lake.

With the city walls and outline of the London Gate tucked away amongst the open spaces, you're likely to learn a history lesson as well as enjoying a day out.

Gadebridge Park

Gadebridge Park, on the edge of Hemel Hempstead, covers 32 hectares divided in two by the Leighton Buzzard Road.

With a listed Roman archaeological site, daffodil display and the River Gade running through the park, this is Dacorum's principal park and offers plenty of open space for families to explore.
