Cities basically in shutdown - can't go the theatre or fancy diner,
not to mention get a haircut or dare risk public transport - we're
being inundated with temptations to make for the countryside . . . our
other escape routes to the sun, sea and sand blocked.
Camping clubs, media articles, the National Trust, website ads
