Public Holidays in England

If you plan to visit England, don't forget to think about the dates of the English public or bank holidays.

Most shops and services in English towns and cities will tend to run a 'weekend' type service on bank holidays. However, most government institutions will remain closed on these days. Note that additional public holidays are granted at Christmas if Christmas Day or Boxing Day falls on a weekend.

Contact your local county council for details of local holiday closures & see below for the full list of traditional national holidays in England.
