So there’s a lot of pressure to make it count. And if you’re near London, you can pass the time enjoying the Notting Hill Carnival.
There are also many other activities taking place elsewhere, whether you want to go shopping, go to the cinema or just hang out with friends.
So if you are traveling over the bank holiday do the buses run?
Here’s everything you need to know.
Do buses run on public holidays?
Buses – and trains – do run on public holidays unless there’s a special announcement for a particular service.
For example, some railway lines carry out important maintenance on public holidays, but there are usually many advance warnings.
The buses otherwise run throughout the holiday, but less frequently than on a normal Monday.
Most bus routes run on Sundays on public holidays, which means you can still catch a bus, but they may end earlier or have longer breaks.
The only thing to watch out for this bank holiday is the bus strike in London. Over 1,600 workers stage a strike led by the United union.
This will have an impact several routes through the capital.
If you’re one of those Brits who have to travel this bank holiday, most bus companies have a timetable you can check online so you don’t have to wait for a bus that doesn’t come.
