Suffolk and Essex residents will now be free to travel to some of the best beauty spots in both counties as the Stay at Home guidance ends.
But the government's roadmap still bans unessential overnight stays and foreign travel. It also urges people to stay local.
The guidance to work from home, where you can, will also continue as people are now able to meet-up outside with two households or six people in time for the Easter break.
The National Trust is welcoming visitors at its Suffolk trails, gardens and parks in Flatford, Pin Mill, Dunwich Heath, Darrow Wood, Orford Ness, Kyson Hill, Ickworth and Sutton Hoo.
It is also welcoming people to Copt Hall Marshes in Essex, which has its car park reopened from 8am to 5pm.
