Public Holidays in United Kingdom

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

Most shops and services in UK 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.

See below for the full list of national holidays in the UK and see the individual country pages for additional public holidays in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
