2016-2017 UK National Holidays


A lot of travellers come here without realising some important national holidays in UK and end up wasting a day not doing anything. One of the most uncommon national holiday in Britain is called’Bank Holiday’, where everything close on Monday.

For this year, we have Christmas on Saturday and New year on Sunday which makes the worst holidays being set in few years. However, to compensate the loss, we have substitute day on Tuesday the 27th and Monday the 2nd! So it’s still not too late to plan your short breaks from work.
