Brits Can Get Full Week Holiday By Booking Just Three Days Off From Next Month

Brits Can Get Full Week Holiday By Booking Just Three Days Off From Next Month

A seven day holiday in exchange for three days off just might be on the cards if you live in the UK

Brits are able to get a seven day holiday next month by booking just three days off instead of five.

Even though it might sound too good to be true, a one-week holiday could be on the cards if you live in Britain and already work five days a week.

And how exactly can you do this, you ask?

Well, 2022 is the year of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee year where we will be given a four-day bank holiday weekend to celebrate.

Get your bags packed, a full week off work could be on the cards!

The Queen's coronation took place on June 2, 1953, at Westminster Abbey in London and the major Platinum Jubilee celebrations will begin on Thursday 22 June.

Notably, Her Majesty will become the first British Monarch ever to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

So, the double bank holiday will be held on Thursday 2 June and Friday 3 June, meaning, those who work five days a week could be in for a treat.

But for the seven day holiday to work, you'll need to book off specific days.

If you book three days off from Monday 30 May to Wednesday 1 June, you'll get a total of one week off.

You'll also need to already have Saturday and Sunday off too, which sadly may prove tricky for some shift workers.

Queen Elizabeth II is set to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee.

Alongside millions of Brits having some additional time off, it seems there's plenty planned for this special bank holiday.

As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, a royal extravaganza will take place, including a live pop concert at Buckingham Palace.

Also, we're set to see a carnival pageant on the streets of London, as well as Jubilee lunches and the lighting of beacons across the world.

Celebrities such as Ross Kemp, Gary Lineker, Gareth Southgate, Levi Roots, Alan Titchmarsh and Lorraine Kelly will be among those backing the special Thank You Day on Sunday 5 June.

It is hoped millions will gather at street parties, host a Big Jubilee Lunch or get together around the county to thank the Queen for her 70 years of service.

The celebration is also to thank neighbours, family, friends, communities, the NHS and key workers for their support over the past year.

The unprecedented anniversary, the first time a British monarch has reached a Platinum Jubilee on the throne, fell on Sunday 6 February, the date the Queen acceded to the throne on the death of her father George VI in 1952.

But, as has been the custom for Elizabeth II’s past jubilees, official commemorations take place four months later when there is a greater chance of warm, dry weather.

The Duke of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, said: "I think I speak for my generation when I say that the example and continuity provided by The Queen is not only very rare among leaders but a great source of pride and reassurance."
