I can do no better than refer you to this CAB guide

 

http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/england/work_e/work_time_off_work_e/holidays_and_holiday_pay.htm

 

 

which is far better than me simply regurgitating the details.

If you work 5 days you are entitled to 28 days hol incl bank holiays.

Of course you may get more than this in yr contract.

 









Does
that answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
