UK bank holiday dates for 2020

We love Bank Holidays here at FlipFlops.co.uk as each year it gives us an extra 8 or so bonus days where we can have a guilt free day off! We use these days to throw on our Flip Flops and prey the sun will be shining! But, how you use the time off is 100% up to you!

To help you plan and get in the mood for the year ahead we have added these dates so you can diary them and look forward to some much deserved time off! Enjoy! 🙂

Final words!

We’ve just noticed that here in England we are being short changed! The English get 8 bank holidays in 2020 but Scotland gets 9 and Northern Ireland win with 10!

Is it time to set up an online petition to the Government so we can get an extra 2 days?
