English Bank Holidays

 
 

Many sources of information for the dates of English Bank Holidays are based on when the standard bank holidays are supposed to fall. These are mostly right, but don't always consider the special occaisions such as the Royal Wedding, Millenium or the Queen's Golden Jubilee. There's a basic page on Direct.Gov with a little background together with dates for this and the next couple of years.

I've put together a definitive list of English bank holidays for 1990 through to 2016. I've also checked these past dates using old diaries, calendars etc. Note that the dates below are for English bank holidays - Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales may differ.
