Some of the important Regional variations in National holidays in UK latest

  • In Scotland the holiday on 1 January (or 2 January if 1 January is Sunday) is statutory. If New Year’s Day is Saturday a substitute holiday is given on 4 January by Royal Proclamation. 2 January is given by Royal Proclamation, with a substitute holiday on 4 January if it is Saturday and 3 January if it is Sunday or Monday. Outside Scotland, 1 January is given by Royal Proclamation, or 3 January if it is Saturday and 2 January if it is Sunday
  • In Scotland, while New Year’s Day and Christmas Day are national holidays, other bank holidays are not necessarily public holidays, since the Scots instead observe traditional local custom and practice for their public holidays.
  • In Northern Ireland, once again, bank holidays other than New Year’s Day and Christmas Day are not necessarily public holidays.
  • Good Friday and Christmas Day are common law holidays, except in Scotland, where they are bank holidays.
  • In Scotland, 25 December is a statutory holiday (or 26 December if Christmas Day falls on a Sunday). 26 December is given by Royal Proclamation if it is neither, Saturday, Sunday nor Monday. 27 and 28 December are given by Royal Proclamation if Christmas Day is Saturday. 28 December only is given if Boxing Day is Saturday.
  • Outside Scotland, if Christmas Day is a Sunday there is an additional statutory holiday on 27 December. By Royal Proclamation, if Christmas Day is a Saturday there is a substitute holiday on 28 December. If Boxing Day is a Sunday there is again a statutory holiday on 27 December, and if Boxing Day is a Saturday there is a substitute holiday by Royal Proclamation on 28 December. Effectively what happens is that if a holiday falls at the weekend a substitute day is given in lieu.

12 July Battle of the Boyne (Orangeman’s Day) Northern Ireland only
Last Monday in August Late Summer Bank Holiday Statutory bank holiday from 1971,[12] following a trial period from 1965 to 1970.

25 December Christmas Day Traditional common law holiday
26 December (see Notes) Boxing Day Statutory bank holiday. Legislation does not name the holiday, but states that it falls on “26th December, if it be not a Sunday.”
27 December not named Statutory bank holiday only in a year in which 25 December is either on a Saturday or Sunday. This has the effect of adding an extra holiday when Christmas Day falls on a Sunday.
28 December not named By Royal Proclamation (example for 2015). This is an extra holiday added when either Christmas Day or Boxing Day falls on a Saturday.

SCOTLAND – (National holidays in UK)

Since Easter 1996 the Scottish clearing banks have harmonized the days on which they are closed with those in England and Wales and are therefore closed on Easter Monday and the last Monday in August (rather than the first). This has resulted in a number of local authorities creating a public holiday on Easter Monday. Previously Easter Monday had not been a public holiday in Scotland.
