About Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday


On Sunday, 6 February 2022, Queen Elizabeth II became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne. Her Majesty ascended to the throne at the age of 25 in 1952, the same day her father, King George VI, died. The nation is set to celebrate the monarch’s historical milestone with an extended four-day bank holiday weekend, which will take place from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June. The Platinum Jubilee will be an opportunity for the country to come together and celebrate the Queen’s remarkable reign. It will also be a time to reflect on her Majesty’s service to the nation and the Commonwealth. The Platinum Jubilee celebrations will be a truly historic moment for our country and one that we will all remember for years to come.
