Within an Eruv, you can carry outside your home in the same way as you can in your own house and garden. All other Shabbat restrictions are unaffected.

You may:

Carry house keys, food or drink for use on Shabbat, tallit, books (e.g. chumash or siddur), required medication, clothes, (e.g. coat, gloves or handkerchief), reading glasses, push a baby buggy, pram or wheelchair.

You may not:

Carry a mobile phone or other items which are muktseh (forbidden to be moved on Shabbat), carry anything which is to be used only after Shabbat. Carry or open an umbrella. Engage in weekday activities which are not in the spirit of Shabbat such as riding a bike, or going shopping (even on credit or where payment is not involved).

If you are unsure whether a particular activity is permitted, please consult your Rabbi.
