Tier rules where you live or where you are going?

Come Thursday I expect Worcester (where I live) to be in Tier 1 and I can go out for a meal with BFF. Me and BFF plan to go to Birmingham for some Xmas shopping, food and a stay overnight. We expect Birmingham to be in Tier 2. Are we allowed to eat a meal together in Birmingham as we are from a Tier 1 town or do we have to follow Birminghamís tier rules?

Iím from Worcester too and so hoping for Tier 1. I would say you could eat out in Birmingham as restaurants can open in tier 2 and hotels will be open. Hoping Iíve read the rules correctly.

Hello!

The difference between tier 1 and 2 is that in tier 1 you can go for a meal with up to 6 friends. In tier 2 you canít mix indoors unless itís with your household so Iím unsure if I would be allowed to eat out in Birmingham with my friend or would we have to be from the same household as we live in a tier 1 area. Itís all so confusing.

Iím Worcester too! Hoping to be able to go to Birmingham as my daughter moved there just as this second lockdown was announced. Iím looking forward to meeting up with her for a meal and some shopping. What tiers each place will be in, though, is anyoneís guess. Will we come out of lockdown into the same tiers as we went into it? I hope so for Worcester but not for Birmingham 🤞🏻🤞🏻

I was expecting Birmingham and parts of the West Midlands to go into tier 3. I know parts of the West Midlands were rumoured to go up to 3 before the lockdown.

The rules for eating out are based on the location of the establishment not the home of the customer.

So using your expectations of tiers...

2 people from Worcester who do not live together cannot go into an eating establishment in Birmingham and share a table as the pub/restaurant is in Tier 2 and the customers are not in the same bubble

Where as

2 people in the same situation who live in Birmingham could travel to Worcester and share a table (as the pub is in Tier 1 so whether they bubble is irrelevant)

I'm in Dudley and our numbers were much lower than the rest of the West Midlands and have just exploded over the last couple of weeks. Two new testing centres opened a couple of weeks ago so I expect that will have something to do with the numbers.

Unfortunately, I think Birmingham and West Midlands will be tier 3 due to the current infection rates (B'ham is 360/100,000). I've just been on gov.uk website and tier 3 means no hotels or hospitality open and no travel to other areas for overnight stays. We're supposed to be going to London mid-December but I can't see this going ahead due to local restrictions here.

I expect Merseyside and most of Lancashire to go into tier 2 as they have reduced the infection and is one of the few places where the r number is at 1 or below
