The precise boundary between London and Kent and Slough Tier Three areas


England has just found out what tier each area will be in after the lockdown and it has been confirmed that London is at tier 2.

While the national lockdown is over, a number of new rules will apply to the capital.

For example, you can hang out with people outside of your household and stick to the rule of six as long as you see them outside in a park or perhaps in a pub garden.

Many eateries are reopening, but you can only go indoors with members of your household or a support bubble.

As London will adjust to Tier 2 life, some areas around London have been restricted even more – Tier 3.

All of Kent is in Tier 3

All of Kent and Medway and the city of Slough, Berkshire are Tier 3 areas.

Some people who normally commute to London from the surrounding counties may live on a higher level than they work.

Londoners, especially those who live on the outskirts, may wonder where the line is between them and a Tier 3 area.

Below are the parts of London that will border with Tier 3 areas.

Hillingdon isn’t entirely adjacent to Slough itself, but it’s very close.

Areas like Longford, West Drayton, Yiewsley and Heathrow Airport are all close to Tier 3 city.

The interactive map below shows the locations outside of London that are in Tier 3.

The differences between Tier 2 and Tier 3

There are a number of differences between these two levels of restriction.

In Tier 2, groups of up to six people can meet with people outside of your household as long as you are outside of your home. For example, a pub garden would be fine. In Tier 3, you can only meet people outside of your household in specific public spaces, e.g. B. in a park.

In Tier 2, most eateries such as cafes, restaurants, and pubs are open to people to eat as long as you are only sitting in venues with members of your household. In Tier 3, these types of eateries are only available for takeout.

Entertainment venues in Tier 2 can generally be opened, but not in Tier 3. However, shops, gyms and swimming pools can be opened on all levels.

Weddings with up to 15 guests are allowed in tier 2, but not in tier 3. Funerals of up to 30 people are allowed on both levels.
