What date in July kids begin their summer vacation in UK?

Hi! What date in July kids begin their summer vacation in UK? We are planning to visit Chessington and Legoland Windsor this summer. I know for sure, if we could do that before summer vacation begins, we could avoid heavy queueing in both places. Thanks.

It varies a bit by area but those I've looked at (in England) it seems to be mostly around 24 July for the last day of term

In Scotland it's several weeks earlier

Around the third week of July

But to be safe any time after the fifteenth until first week in September.

It varies slightly from town to town

Usually around start of 4th week, eg 22nd this year, but it varies by a week or so from school to school. I would come before the middle of the month.

I live just down the road from Legoland and not to far away from Chessington and my kids break up for the summer hols on Wed 24th July,so wud assume most schools around this area wud be finishing in that week.......best bet wud be to go to these attractions in the 1st 2/3 wks of July and if u can,avoid weekends and go in the mid week if poss,as w.ends obvs get very packed also.....

Hi Yuri,if u want to save some money,look on these 2 attractions websites and you'll save at least 10/15% of the normal price if u book on-line.They are both good Theme Parks but not cheap if u decide to just turn up and pay.Always nice if u can save some money!!

Hav a g8t hol n hope u enjoy ur time at the parks.....
