Time out of cell for prisoners varies across the prison estate and the information requested is not held centrally.

The amount of time prisoners are allowed to spend outside their cells to engage in activities (other than work, education, treatment interventions, recovery focused services or religious services), or to associate together, will vary from one establishment to another, depending on the availability of constructive activities and supervisory staff. All prisons are required to have systems in place to monitor regimes and ensure that they are safe, decent, secure, resilient and sustainable.
