Soon children across the UK will be breaking up for the summer holidays, enjoying several weeks off school before the autumn school term begins. Term times vary across the country, with England, Scotland and Northern Ireland having different term dates.
Summer holidays may feel very different this year, as despite the unlocking of the country after strict lockdown rules – travel abroad is a touchy subject.
Instead millions of Brits are opting for staycations, going on holidays to popular hotspots like Cornwall, the Lake District and Skye.
With the kids off school, the opening of theme parks, leisure centres and cinemas may prove a useful tool for parents wanting to entertain them.
But when exactly do schools break up across the UK? Express.co.uk has put together a guide below.
