Here is a list of all nine bank holidays throughout 2022, including an extra day to mark the Queen's Jubilee year.

A new year is approaching and people are already planning how to make the most of their time off in 2022, with a total of nine bank holidays to take advantage of next year.

The UK will celebrate an extra bank holiday in June to mark the Queen' s Jubilee year, as she celebrates 70 years on the throne.

Similar to this year, with Christmas Day falling on a weekend, it will be substituted for a day later in the week.
