What is a bank holiday?
A bank holiday is a public holiday in the UK when most people are given an extra day off work.
They were given the name bank holidays as banks are closed – and if they can’t do business, no-one else can.
Similarly, schools are shut on bank holidays and transport services are often scaled back.
Booking certain days off work can help your holiday allowance stretch further.
