BankHolidays2013.co.uk is a website designed to take the confusion out of planning trips and arranging vacations on public holidays.
Buckinghamshire, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2013 -- Bank Holidays are an incredibly important tradition that allow residents of partaking nations to take a day off to celebrate historical events and landmark occasions. Although these dedicated holidays happen at the same time of the month every year, the exact dates can often be confusing to keep track of, especially when additional "one-off" bank holidays are added to the schedule. These may include things such as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, in the case of UK bank holidays.
One website helping to clarify the calendar of national holiday dates is Bank Holidays 2013, a website dedicated to educating visitors on the numerous dates that they are entitled to take off, as well as the history and culture surrounding these holidays.
This useful website contains both the dates that one should make note of (especially useful when strategically planning annual leave to minimise the amount of days needed to take off), as well as travelling ideas for those wanting to maximise their bank holidays and long weekends. Useful information can be found on city breaks, local attractions, short getaways and sightseeing.
The site is regularly updated, listing the latest ideas and popular discussions on affordable trips away, and the things to do when making short trips abroad. Subscribers to the Bank Holidays newsletter also receive automated reminders of bank holidays, and special offers on trips away.
The Bank Holidays 2013 website has been designed as the one stop shop for all matters related to public holidays. A spokesperson for the site said:
"The Bank Holidays 2013 website has been designed to provide British, Irish and American readers with a quick overview of bank holiday dates for the whole year. This is useful for those wanting to take holidays and vacations without using up too much of their precious annual leave. Those looking for travel inspiration can browse our Bank Holiday Ideas blog, which is regularly updated with travel advice, tourist hotspots, and long weekend ideas.
We have even launched a petition for a new UK Autumn Bank Holiday. We noticed a gap in public holidays during the autumn, and with the renewed sense of national pride currently felt in the UK, we thought it would be great to apply for a new Bank Holiday, dedicated to celebrating what it is to be British; if we can get 100,000 signatures, it has the potential to be discussed in the House of Commons!"
