During Easter, you may experience some disruptions due to the bank holidays - check out our guide on what to expect!
In the UK, there are two main public holidays that fall during Easter: Good Friday and Easter Monday. Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday is the day after Easter Sunday.
Good Friday and Easter Monday are recognized as bank holidays, meaning that many businesses offer their staff a day off to allow them to enjoy the holiday.
Shops, Restaurants and other Businesses
During a bank holiday, most businesses (such as shops and restaurants) and offices are closed or operate on a reduced schedule. This can affect your ability to purchase goods or services, or access certain facilities.
Essential services such as hospitals, police stations will continue to operate, but may run on a reduced offering.
If you're unsure whether a particular business will be open during Easter, it's best to check their website or contact them directly.
Transport services in the UK can be affected during Easter due to the bank holidays, as many transport companies operate on a reduced schedule or do not operate at all.
Public transport, such as buses, trains, and the tube, may operate on a Sunday or holiday schedule, which means that there may be fewer services and longer wait times. Some routes may also be cancelled, so it's important to check the schedules and plan your journey in advance.
It's also worth noting that if you're travelling internationally during Easter, flights and other forms of transport may be affected due to the holidays in other countries. It's a good idea to check with your transport provider or travel agent for any potential disruptions or changes to your travel plans!
