A little bit about it...
What are Bank Holidays?
British bank holidays are public holidays and have been recognised since 1871.
Why are they called Bank holidays?
The name Bank Holiday comes from the time when banks were shut and so no trading could take place.
There is currently a total of 8 permanent bank and public holidays in England, Wales and Scotland and 10 in Northern Ireland. These include Christmas Day and Good Friday, which in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are common law' holidays (they are not specified by law as bank holidays but have become customary holidays because of common observance).
