When is August Bank Holiday 2021? - Allens Caravans
Allens Caravans

The UK enjoys multiple public holidays, also known as bank holidays, throughout the year. The summer bank holiday falls at the end of the school holidays and marks the end of the break and the return to school and work, but when does it fall this year?

August Bank Holiday Date 

This year, the August bank holiday falls on Monday 30th August 2021. The school summer holidays run from Friday 23rd July to Tuesday August 31st, with the bank holiday coming at the end of the season.

Bank Holiday Breaks

Holidaying over the bank holiday is a popular choice, and our holiday and touring parks are teaming with holidaymakers during these times. The August bank holiday is a particularly popular time to book a break, and there’s no better place to indulge at the end of a lazy summer than at an Allens Caravans holiday park.

Due to the date of the bank holiday falling two days before schools are due to return, if you’re looking to book a family break, a long weekend is your best bet. You and your family can hire one of our luxury caravans from Friday to Monday or Friday to Tuesday, depending on how close to the wire you want to leave the washing when you return home!

Not everyone is bound by the school holiday dates, and in that case, there are no restrictions on how long you can stay with us over the course of the summer bank holiday. Why not book a week-long holiday that runs from Friday to Friday? That way, you can enjoy the last of the summer sun and revel in the bank holiday spirit without having to rush home and get back to normality afterwards.

Things to do over the August Bank Holiday 

Whether you’re a family or a couple looking to make the most of the end of summer, there’s no shortage of things for you to do at our holiday parks. If you head to Bredon View in Worcestershire, you can dabble in the onsite pitch and putt, play 18 holes at the full golf course, try your hand at river fishing or enjoy a cold drink at the clubhouse and bar.

Not far from Bredon View is The Springs which has plenty to offer everyone. From lake fishing to indoor swimming and countryside walks, there are so many ways to spend the August bank holiday at The Springs.

Whilst there’s lots to do at our Worcestershire parks, there’s even more to do in the local area. Our parks are set amongst stunning scenery which paves the way for beautiful walks in the late summer sun. There are plenty of days out activities, too, including the West Midland Safari Park, Broadway Tower, All Things Wild, Pershore Abbey, Croome Court and Worcester Cathedral.

Warwickshire Bank Holiday Breaks

Head slightly further south from our Worcestershire parks and you’ll find Leedons Park, nestled next to Broadway village in the Cotswolds. There’s an onsite bowling green, tennis court and indoor swimming pool. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, there’s no better place to take a bank holiday walk than here.

Abbot’s Salford is our second park located in the Cotswolds. It’s one of our most popular parks, especially with families, so if you and your children are looking to get away over the course of the summer bank holiday, Abbot’s Salford is ideal. You can play a game of football or basketball, take a dip in the heated outdoor pool, fish for carp and play pitch and putt. What better way to spend the August bank holiday?

There is lots to do both on and off-site, so if you want to explore the surrounding area, you’ll find plenty of things to do. Warwickshire is perhaps most well known for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, so if you’re a literary fiend, you’ll have lots to satisfy your needs. You can also explore the British Motor Museum, Kenilworth Castle and Warwick Castle.

Bank Holiday Beach Getaways 

Fancy heading to the beach over the August bank holiday? If so, you’ll want to book in at Sunbeach holiday park in North Wales. It backs right on to the Cardigan Bay beach, so you needn’t go far for a spot of late summer sunshine. When you’ve finished paddling in the sea, hiking up the Cambrian mountains and searching for marine life in the rockpools, you can retreat back to the site where you’ll be able to continue the fun. There’s an indoor swimming pool, a café and a games room, so whatever way you wish to spend the last part of summer, you’ll find something for you.

Further down the coast is  Glan Y Mor holiday park. Like Sunbeach, Glan Y Mor is situated right on the Clarach Bay beachfront, meaning you can indulge in a morning, afternoon or evening stroll along the coast. Onsite you’ll find a playground, live entertainment, a restaurant and a soft play centre.

North Wales has so much to offer tourists, so make sure you reserve time for a day out to explore the surrounding area. You can take a trip to Aberystwyth, head to the National Botanic Garden, or even head to Borth Wild Animal Kingdom. How better to spend your bank holiday?
