    What is closed and open these days? (Friday and Monday)

    I am not from the UK so I am always surprised by what is suddenly closed.

    It depends. You'll find that post offices and banks will be closed. Large supermarkets will typically be open, but you may find some smaller shops (bakeries, pharmacies, etc.) will be closed all day. Usually public transport will be available, albeit at a reduced service.

    Bank transfers should either leave or be paid into your account on the following working day, although someone else could check this as I'm not entirely sure. It seems unlikely that bank transfers would be operational considering the banks and post offices will close.

    Hope this helps
