What will the weather be like this bank holiday?

10 images

Ahh, the British bank holiday. It’s one of (sadly few) three-day weekends in our working calendar that we look forward to every year. But, thanks to our fickle weather, we wait with bated breath right up to the last minute for the forecasters to put us out of our misery: are we in for hours of sun-drenched alfresco fun in which we dust off the barbecue and bring out the bangers, or will it be – well – a disappointing wash-out? No need to give up hope, for whatever the weather forecast is going to be this bank holiday we at Housetohome have plenty of practical ideas to fill your days – come rain or shine. For a sunny forecast a picnic is the perfect way to celebrate a short break the old-fashioned way. Prepare and pack sandwiches, drinks and sweet treats and then head to a local park or outdoor space that makes you happy. Make sure everyone is comfortable with plenty of floor cushions and blankets.
