If you’re looking to do some in-branch banking done on Monday 30 August, you might be out of luck

There’s a good reason bank holidays are called bank holidays - it’s because originally, only banks and financial buildings closed on these days, thanks to Sir John Lubbock, who drafted the Bank Holiday Act in 1871.

This is what you need to know about the opening hours of different banks this August bank holiday Monday in England, Wales and Northern Ireland - Scotland, unfortunately is missing out as it already enjoyed its August bank holiday earlier in the month.
