According to the FT there is a chance that Brits could visit by the middle of July. It's understood that government officials in popular Brit holiday destinations hope for "air bridge" deals ahead of the summer holiday season.

This way an air bridge is an agreement between the UK and one other country, which will let people travel freely between the two nations without going into quarantine when they arrive. It would spare tourists and returning Brits from having to isolate for 14 days when they enter the UK - a policy that came into force today.
