August bank holiday 2021: When will the British have their next long weekend off?

Summer has been a mixed bag this year, despite a week-long heat wave last month.

With heavy rain and colder temperatures at the start of July, and Storm Evert currently wreaking havoc in many areas of the country, Brits will have to adjust to harsh weather for the rest of the week.

Despite the awful weather, many in the UK are hoping for a second heatwave, with the Met Office predicting that the middle of the month to the end of the month would be significantly warmer than the torrential downpours and stormy conditions to which many have grown accustomed.

What better way to commemorate the arrival of spring than with a long Bank Holiday Weekend?

This year, the government has approved eight bank holidays, with the next one coming at the end of this month.

Bank holidays are frequently used to commemorate national holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Easter.

Some, on the other hand, are tied to the seasons, with two in the spring and one towards the end of August.

It’s only a matter of weeks until the next bank holiday, which falls on August 30.

It’s one of only three bank holidays left this year, and it’ll be a long time before we get another long weekend.

They will be Christmas Day and Boxing Day, with both falling on a weekend, hence the Bank Holidays for December 27 and 28 will be replaced.
