If you are looking for a legal definition, you’ll find differing interpretations in the Highways Act, the Road Traffic Act, and the Public Order Act.

S9 of the Public Order Act 1936 probably provides as clear meaning as any, stating:

“Public place” includes any highway ……. and any other premises or place to which at the material time the public have or are permitted to have access, whether on payment or otherwise.”
