    Are banks closed on Good Friday? 17th Mar 08 at 2:43 PM
    Sorry this may sound like a really stupid question, but please hear me out.
    I am a bit confused on the whole subject...

    Good friday is a 'Public Holiday' not a 'Bank Holiday', does this mean the banks will be open? Its a bit annoying if banks are shut on the friday and the monday, as ive got a cheque coming on the friday, it just puts another 2 days & a weekend onto the already unbelievable clearing time of 5 days!

    I assume my bank (Lloyds Gravesend) will be open on saturday as normal, but this will not class as one of the clearing days will it?

    Again no gunning me for being thick, just a bit confused and google is giving different answers, just wanted to see what was right as you lot are usually spot on with things like this!

    Thanks for your help!
