UK Public Holidays 2014 Calendar


2014 United Kingdom Bank Holidays / Public Holidays Calendar

Bank holiday is a term for 4 holidays in England, Wales, and Ireland as well as 5 holidays in Scotland as stated in the Bank Holidays Act 1971.

Now, the term is colloquially used for public holidays which are not public holidays such as Christmas Day and Good Friday. On bank holidays, employees in UK are not automatically entitled to time off. Time off or extra pay are determined by the terms of contract of employment between employees and employers.

Although there is no automatic right for a day off, most employees in UK (except the essential service workers such as firemen, nurse, and public transport workers) don’t go to work on bank holidays. Meanwhile, the essential service workers may receive extra pay for working on such days.

Since England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales are not formal subdivisions of United Kingdom, each country celebrates its own public holidays or bank holidays. List of bank holidays in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales are available below.
