UK School Holidays Calendar 2020/21

A lot goes into planning the perfect trip for your family! One of the most important aspects is finding out what dates will be best suited for you and your children. Another thing is booking early as it often means that you get cheaper rates and better prices than if you were to book the week before. So we’ve conveniently provided you with the UK school holidays dates your children will be off next year so you don’t accidentally book the wrong dates. Alternatively, you might actually be trying to avoid school holiday season and thus, you can use this as a guide to book a quieter time!

However please do treat these as a guideline only because depending on your council, these may vary. Different councils may have a different time period however, we have tried to provide the dates that the potential holidays can fall in. So, do check your child’s school calendar to ensure you have the correct dates for your child’s school.

Also, please note that for the dates listed, we’ve calculated using the school days; so Mondays-Fridays. It does not include weekends.
