UK School Holidays Dates – Updated for 2019

    School term and holiday dates vary across the UK. These can have an impact on when you decide to go away, and how much everything (including airport parking) can cost.

    We’ve broken down the school holidays for you below using information from School Holidays Europe.

    You can use this guide in conjunction with our Bank Holiday 2019 Dates Guide to really plan out the best time to go away for you and your family.

    Please note that these are purely guidelines and you should always check with your local council and school for the dates specific to you. A quick way to find out holiday dates from your local council is by entering your postcode into this government search tool.

    And don’t forget to book your airport parking well in advance of the school holidays if you want big savings. Sign up to our newsletter to receive an instant half term discount code, which will bag you up to 30% off.

    1. can you do a table that shows the overal earliest dates and latest dates for the collective UK?

    2. Hi Louise, thank you for your feedback. I have updated the tables to show the next school holiday for each. I hope this helps in making it easier to find the dates you are looking for.
