It feels like 2023 has flown by and with the festive season all but over Brits will be preparing to return to work.

Having gotten used to a bit of downtime, many of us will already be looking ahead to our next extended break from work. 

Every year, hard-working Brits enjoy a handful of days off thanks to bank holidays.

But how long do we have to wait until the next one and when will we get some well-earned time off next year?
