See the 2018 public holiday dates here. And what a superb time to get out and about. Get some fresh air, take the dog for a walk. Do something a little different perhaps.
Here you’ll find a comprehensive guide to upcoming public holidays in the UK. We also have specific pages for each part of the UK along with a history of how bank holidays have developed over the years, local traditions and customs so do visit the following pages for public holidays in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland for an individual run down.
A date marked with an asterisk (or a *) is in lieu of, or a substitute for, the actual bank holiday should it fall on a weekend.
