UK School Holiday Dates
Looking to make some awesome plans for the school holidays? Well, what better time to whisk the family away for a sun-soaked break on the coast – and start making some memories to last a lifetime, right?
First things first, when are the school holidays? Dates can vary across the UK, meaning frantic last-minute shopping, traffic and lots of excited half-term holidaymakers flooding to the airport. So, knowing when you’re best to go is the first step in bagging that bargain break. To make it easy for you, we’ve pulled the dates from across the UK into a few easy-to-read tables below (because who wants to trawl the internet looking for dates when you could be searching for holidays?).
Dates may vary by a few days either side of the dates on our list, so to be sure, enter your postcode in this handy little government tool to check your exact dates!
