The dates include two days off for Easter, two off in May and one at the end of August as well as the days off for Christmas and New Year. Bank holidays in the UK are public holidays during which banks and many other businesses and institutions are closed for the day, reports The Echo.

They are officially recognized by the government, and people are usually entitled to a day off from work. The term “bank holiday” dates back to the 19th century when the Bank Charter Act of 1844 was passed.


This act gave the Bank of England certain regulatory powers, including the ability to designate certain days as public holidays during which the banks would be closed. The term “bank holiday” was used because it was the banks that were primarily affected by these closures.
