LAZY locals in Manchester spend less than six hours a week outside, but they're not the only Brits who hide away indoors.
While Manchester residents ranked the lowest, spending just five hours and one minute outside a week, those living in Bristol, were not much better – clocking in just 19 minutes more.
And the study of 2,000 has ranked locals in other British cities, too.
Of those surveyed, a fifth claimed they have no access to green space.
And of those who do spend time in the garden or public spaces, just five per cent reckon this exceeds 10 hours a week.
But, at the other end of the scale, Southampton residents spend the longest outdoors, getting seven hours and 23 minutes under the sun.
While folk in Edinburgh will leave the house for six hours and 58 minutes a week.
It also emerged 12 per cent of adults don't have a garden.

The study was commissioned by cider brand Magners, which has teamed up with radio and TV presenter Roman Kemp to get people outdoors more – by giving them the chance to host their own garden parties in some of the UK’s most unique and desirable back gardens.
Spokesman, Iain Telford, said: “With temperatures reaching record highs, we wanted to provide something special for people this summer.
“Not all of us have access to a private garden or have large outdoor spaces nearby, so we’re excited to be able to offer some incredible dwellings which have been hand selected to absolutely wow the nation.
“There’s really nothing better than being outdoors on a hot day and we’re excited to help hundreds enjoy this experience from the comfort of a beautiful private garden.”
The study also found that, despite the findings, 65 per cent would prefer to socialise and enjoy drinks with friends and family outdoors rather than inside.
And 62 per cent think the lockdowns have made them appreciate outdoor spaces more than ever before.
Of those who do enjoy leaving the house, 48 per cent immediately feel less stressed and 46 per cent report feeling of joy and happiness.
While 45 per cent usually feel calmer and 34 per cent will sleep better than night.
For people needing to focus, 21 per cent get a restored capacity for concentration and attention.
Roman Kemp said: “I love bringing people together, and throughout the summer, you really can't beat a garden party, especially in this glorious weather.
“When the parks are full, what better way to enjoy the sunshine than in your own private tropical retreat?
“And for one lucky group, I'll be making a surprise appearance."
