Full list of 2022 bank holidays

0 13

Bank holidays are always a highlight for employees; and if you get your planning right, they could entitle you to a few extra days off.

It’s a particularly good time to start looking at the calendar, too, given that Britons will get an additional bank holiday next year thanks to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

In June, Her Majesty will celebrate 70 years on the throne – a historic milestone marking the longest reign of any British monarch to date.

Hence why a four-day weekend has been introduced to mark the celebrations.

Outlining plans to stage a series of events across the UK, Oliver Dowden said in 2020 that the country will hold a “celebration to remember” over a special bank holiday weekend from 2-5 June.

To create the four-day weekend, the government said the late May bank holiday in 2022 will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional bank holiday on Friday 3 June will be created.

Because of the way that the bank holidays next year are arranged, there is a way of “hacking” your annual leave which would mean you turn 18 days into 45 days off.

For example, because of the bank holidays surrounding Easter next year, if you book off 19-22 April, this means you’d be able to go on holiday from 15 April until 24 April.

As for bank holidays, here are the dates for 2022:

3 January Monday New Year’s Day (substitute day)
15 April Friday Good Friday
18 April Monday Easter Monday
2 May Monday Early May bank holiday
2 June Thursday Spring bank holiday
3 June Friday Platinum Jubilee bank holiday
29 August Monday Summer bank holiday
26 December Monday Boxing Day
27 December Tuesday Christmas Day (substitute day)
