We can expect 8 bank holidays in England this year, thanks to the coronation of King Charles III. We have put together this quick guide on how to get more holidays whilst booking fewer days off work.
Last year we got a total of 10 bank holidays in England due to Queen Elizabeth’s II Platinum Jubilee celebrating 70 years of reigning. Sadly we also got an additional holiday for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
