London Holidays

To enjoy your holidays in London and know what days the monuments, shops and museums are closed, it is necessary to know the London festival and national holiday calendar.

London in England has a series of national holidays, which are far less when compared to those in other European cities.

These are called “Bank Holidays”, because initially were only done by bank workers, but then spread to other activities.

It is advisable to know all these non-working days in advance, because it is possible that museums and monuments that we plan to visit will be closed during our stay.
