The Summer Bank Holiday is a holiday that for many marks the end of Summer. During the three-day weekend many people take short trips or holidays, visiting family and friends in different parts of the country.
Statutory bank holiday from 1971, following a trial period from 1965 to 1971.
Replaced the first Monday in August (formerly commonly known as “August Bank Holiday”) which had been in use from 1871. The legislation does not specify a name for the holiday, merely when it occurs.
In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the summer bank holiday is on the last Monday of August. In Scotland it is on the first Monday of August. This day marks the end of the summer holidays for many people who return to work or school in the autumn.
