LOOKING to get away for the bank holiday weekend but left it to the last minute? Just make sure you book before before the end of today - August 23.

Adult-only holiday provider, Warner Leisure Hotels, which runs Bodelwyddan Castle Hotel, has revealed the date after finding a colossal surge in bookings every year for the past five years.

According to the hotel chain, the spike in last-minute bookings seems to occur four days before the bank holiday weekend, with 50 per cent more bank holiday bookings made on this date than days in the previous week, and 57 per cent more than on the same day the week prior.

Simon Thompson, managing director of Warner Leisure Hotels, said: “We weren’t entirely surprised to see that holiday bookings spiked four days before the bank holiday over the past half-decade – for many people this long weekend sneaks up on them.

“After the year we’ve had, so many of us are looking to enjoy a well-earned break this August bank holiday."
