With the ever-changing trends of bank holiday opening hours, it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of which businesses will be open and closed over the long weekends.

However, one constant has always been the banking world - with branch closures giving the eight-time yearly occurrences their name.

Ever since the introduction of the Bank Holidays Act 1871, bank branches have shut up shop for the day, at the decree of politician and banker Sir John Lubbock.

However, this hasn't stopped one city bank taking the time to remind its customers of this fact.

The Santander branch on Orford Hill in Norwich has placed a notice on its door informing customers that it will not be open today - Monday, August 26 - due to the bank holiday.
