Discover the Upcoming Bank Holidays in the UK

Each year, the UK Government designates a set of bank holidays for the coming months. Typically, there are eight bank holidays in a standard year, but exceptional circumstances can lead to additional holidays. For instance, this year witnessed an extra bank holiday to commemorate the King’s Coronation.

The King’s Coronation:
In a memorable event this year, the King’s Coronation took place on May 6, followed by an additional bank holiday on May 8.

Remaining Bank Holidays in 2023:
As for the remainder of 2023, there are two more bank holidays:

  • Monday, December 25 – Christmas Day
  • Tuesday, December 26 – Boxing Day

Residents of Scotland have an extra bank holiday to look forward to on Thursday, November 30, in celebration of St. Andrew’s Day.

Employment Considerations:
It’s important to note that employers are not obligated to provide paid leave on bank or public holidays. Bank holidays can also impact the timing of wage and benefit payments.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) typically disburse benefits on the working day preceding a bank holiday. For example, if a bank holiday falls on a Monday, and your benefits or pension would typically arrive on that day, you can expect the payment on the preceding Friday.
